View and Control (!) everything on the Halloween Decorations Webcam - D'OH!

While I appreciate the folks who have asked if they can donate/PayPal to cover the costs of the lights and (wind powered!) electricity, I've never asked for donations and don't plan to change that. While it is a bit of work to put up all the Halloween stuff, I do it anyway for the neighborhood kids and the web site is just my way of saying "Happy Halloween" to folks around the world. If you feel compelled to make some sort of donation, my kids have celiac disease so make a donation toward medical research - tell 'em Komar.Org sent 'ya! ;-)

BTW, for the actual night of Halloween, I have "HULK SMASH" audio playing really loud. So when the kids come by, I ask the smallest (and scaredest one) kid to tell the Hulk to be "Shut Up". It requires a little prodding, but eventually they will say "Be Quiet Hulk" ... and I, of course, hit the OFF button on my wireless X10 remote in my pocket and 'lo and behold, the Hulks is quiet - the speakers power is toggled off. Always get a great response as that kid feels pretty good after that! ;-)

2013 Halloween Decorations Webcam Updates

2013_09_25: As noted at the top of the page, the Controllable Halloween Decorations for Celiac Disease raises awareness and encourages people who enjoy the light show to donate to the Center for Celiac Research at Massachusetts General Hospital. Read more here and consider adding to the over $75,000 raised so far. For reference, here is the halloween 2012 webcam updates.

2013_09_28: I was fortunate to have a loaner webcam last year, so am hoping to get another one for 2013 - wish me luck!

2013_09_28: Spooky comments now enabled on the Halloween Blog.

2013_10_07: Everything is pulled out of the crawl space, have completed some initial light testing/fixing, repaired some leaks in the Hulk's, and webcams are tested and ready to go.

2013_10_14: The 13th is unlucky ... so I turned everything on tonight ... still some more stuff to put out ... but the webcams and X10 controllers are all working well. Once again, an issue with a leak in the Hulk ... but I just keep pumping him up!

2013_10_18: Woke up this morning to a couple of inches of snow - WOOT! ;-)

2013_10_30: The weather forecast for Halloween night is sunny and 50°F ... so should see quite a few trick-or-treaters. I have 450 pieces of candy for the little kids and quite a few liquid refreshments for the "big" kids - hopefully this will be enough! ;-)

2013_10_31: Another crazy-fun Halloween night! Almost 200 trick-or-treaters came by as the weather was mild, although gusty winds came up later in the evening. They almost cleaned me out of candy (I'm very generous, especially early on) and I also passed out shots of Chocolate Wine, EggNog, and/or "Adult Chocolate Milk" for the "big" kids. Check out all the action in the time-lapse halloween movies while listening to some halloween music and read the funny commentary in the halloween blog.

2013_11_08: I've put away the Halloween stuff and shut down the Halloween Blog ... so it's a wrap for 2013 ... and time to get ready for Christmas! ;-)
