I found your website while looking for Halloween decorations for our Walk the Wicked Woods. We decorate an acre wooded lot with lights and decorations. The kids walk thru a trail collecting candy along the way. Most of my decorations are yardart that I paint myself. Email me if you would you like to see some pictures of it?

Hi All, Hi Gill, Im hoping our local Asda gets there decorations in soon as I want an 8ft inflateable frankenstein for outdoors. They sold out last year before I could get one.
Yea, 8 foot Frankenstein's are good to have ... especially when combined with an 8 foot Homer Simpson too - D'OH! ;-)
19 - United States - Alpena Michigan 45.065°N 83.455°W
HI Alex Will You Have Stretmaning vido this year
Probably not (unless some webcam/video server company offers to ante up for the holiday fun) ... but we'll certainly have some nifty Halloween time-lapse movies.
20 - United States - Woodstock Illinois 42.322°N 88.467°W
yo alek wat about - camstreams . com
They require that the webcam be attached to a Windoze computer. In my case, the webcam is wireless and has its own IP address. I appreciate the suggestion, but like many that I get, it just won't work for my setup.
21 - United Kingdom - London 51.500°N 0.116°W

Amazing Latex masks for halloween If like me you allways have trouble finding anything good to wear at this time of the year to your party or just to frighten the ____________ out of some body...I usually find them hard to find ...not any longer!...Here is a great site that i have found they have a range of VERY realistic faces that you just will not believe so I ordered a real face prosthetic style mask like you see in the movies and when it arrived i couldnt wait to try it on...It fitted right next to my own skin and even moved with my own expressions and you can use them over and over again my wife did not recognise me and she became very alarmed!...I have now ordered another two masks from them and cant wait to try them out on my gran...'I hope i am in the will'...brilliant face changing masks ! Here is there website address... LINK DELETED

If you dont get lucky Dave, I'd recommend a certain online auction site. We're usually lucky finding what we want, when I want that certain "must have" item that I won't wait for the sales for.
24 - United States - Plano Texas 33.048°N 96.734°W

Synonymous with Halloween is a full moon ... and we just had a dandy ... was very cool watching from the "Haunted Office" (where webcam3 will be) of the moon setting over the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

Hey alek do you think you could spell my name on the lawn with lights when you put out halloween decorations? i would love it. i would be kinda sad if you didn't do it. my name is: Chris Jones. please!!!!
37 - United States - Hulkville in the Republic of Boulder, Colorado
I appreciate all the compliments on the Moonset picture - yea, I'm fortunate to live in a place where I can see that once/month ... if I don't sleep in. Chris: If you change your name to B-O-O, then there's a decent chance your name will be spelling in lights on the front lawn ... ditto if it is O-N/O-F-F ... ;-)
38 - United States - Las Vegas Nevada 36.151°N 115.204°W

42 - United Kingdom - London 51.500°N 0.116°W
Chris if you don't like it, then don___t reply. Simple as really. As if he is going to put your name on the hallowed turf, Maybe if you made a generous donation to the Celiac Disease Research ___Cough___ A big amount ___Cough___ Then maybe Mr Halloween would give it a thought. Happy Halloween Alek ! :)

Hey Alek... Ive been on your webby for like 4 years ! loveing what you do !! How do you get all the electreonics outsie when it rains ? doesnt everything blow ??
The electrical outlets are under cover and/or have weatherproof boxes over 'em. And despite everything being GFI protected, that rarely trips ... unless there is freezing rain which is the worse. I also try to keep each circuit under 10 Amps so as not to overload the fuses.
61 - United States - Fort Smith Arkansas 35.339°N 94.383°W

Update: I got a good part of the front part of the house done including tossing the HULK up on the balcony and setting up the inflatables - time-lapse movie over here for those that missed it. And yes, the Grim Reaper is new this year ... with another one (on a motorcycle!) to follow on the front lawn! ;-)

Hey Alek, what happened to the green inflatable skull ? it isnt up this year.
You may recall that the Skull's fan motor blew out last year - see Halloween/2007 blog entry #184 and Christmas/2007 blog entry #159 - but I was able to do "Open Fan Transplant Surgery" from Elmo. I subsequently reversed 'em back for Christmas ... but now I have to switch 'em back yet again and get the Skull back out there on the front yard!

So I was out playing baseball with my boys (picture of both of 'em) this evening. I was pitching and 7-year old Kyle was up to bat (note $3 sticker - garage sale purchase) ... and he SMASHES one to deep Center Field. But then he says "I cracked the bat Daddy" ... which he did - Game Over!

I usually don't do that, since with the daylight (it's hard to make the sun set sooner!), you can't see the lights ... but it's a cloudy day, so sure, I'll turn it on an hour early tonight.
161 - United Kingdom - London 51.500°N 0.116°W
Thanks for the great light show Alek, keep up the good work!

173 - United States - Hulkville in the Republic of Boulder, Colorado
Here's a few pictures from the parade itself. My youngest son Kyle is in the front passenger seat whooping it up - there are half a dozen Cub Scouts sitting on back of the car behind the Hulk who is dressed up in patriotic garb - the scary looking driver is yours truly. The "banner" is actually a $4 sheet that has been spray painted and "attached" to the car with some of those mongo powerful magnets - worked pretty well. This is the third (fourth?) year I've driven the Hulkmobile for the Cub Scout Troup in the Lafayette Parade and it is a ton of fun!

181 - United States - Montgomery Alabama 32.384°N 86.354°W
Thanks so much for doing this and the Christmas lights every year. I look forward to watching your cams around the holidays. I wish I had half the decorations you do. I LOVE to decorate!
182 - United States - Port Townsend Washington 48.035°N 122.814°W
Not Christmas yet, but we're expecting snow in the Olympic and Cascades early this week (3,500 feet). Could be 2 to 5 inches.
183 - United States - Castroville Texas 29.360°N 98.892°W
Wish it would snow here...
There was quite a Colorado Snow Storm two years ago over Christmas - several feet of snow - shut down the whole Denver area and airport for a couple of days!
184 - United States - Chicago Illinois 41.867°N 87.674°W
I remember 2006 and all the snow... and your neighbor "plowing" your driveway! That was the year I discovered your site!
185 - United States - Hulkville in the Republic of Boulder, Colorado
While it didn't get cold enough for snow last night (but maybe this weekend), there was a bit of rain - either that, or Frank and Homer were doing some serious partying and were hung over this morning! Note plywood bases and concrete pavers for stability - the eight foot inflatables really move around, especially if the wind blows.
186 - United States - Fort Smith Arkansas 35.339°N 94.383°W
I was just noticing last year's Halloween pics....where is the 'rotating' pumpkin? Is that the one way out by the street?
Yep ... at the bottom of the grass near the sidewalk ... top-left corner in webcam2.

Hello from the ISS
192 - United States - Hulkville in the Republic of Boulder, Colorado
So I walk out the front door to get the morning paper ... and a visitor last night left something on the driveway ... my guess it was probably a coyote. Note also the whiteness on the grass ... first frost ... and we may get snow this weekend.
193 - United States - Sparks Nevada 39.572°N 119.617°W
Wow thatss realy cool stroy about the coyote. Thanks for sharing.

As Chris noted in post #195, the Haunted Office is now mostly decorated. I'll take some higher quality pictures with my DSLR in the next couple of days, but here's some webcam snapshots plus
a video time-lapse for 'ya. Note that Heads-Up Harry's eyes/mouth move (but his arms don't - bummer) and the "Brain Dude" is also kinda spooky.
203 - United States - 38.000°N 97.000°W
Hey Mr. G aka Halloween Dude. The office is coming along really nice and the skull is gonna be excellent to play with. Thanks for all your hard work.
204 - United States - Massapequa New York 40.682°N 73.467°W
Alex how come you cant have all three of the cams on all day even when the x10 controls are off. Just having one on makes no sense. Any reason behind it and can you consider having all three on 24/7 so we can view all aspects of your home all day? PLEASE WRITE BACK
Just an FYI that it's quite annoying to use "ALL CAPS" (remember, this website is free) and normally that means I would not respond ... but suffice to say in this case, there are a number of reasons the other two webcams aren't online 7x24.
205 - United States - Massapequa New York 40.682°N 73.467°W
OK Can you make a list of those "number of resons" ok and I dont see the need for you to be nasty and show an additude when I was just expressing my interest in your, house, site and lights. SO PLEASE WRITE BACK WITH AN APOLOGY

Hi! alek, this is the third year i see you decorations. You are the best. May I suggest you, if you can use, windows media enconder, for a live streaming, With your laptop and use the link on the page,??? is it possible, or it is more complex than that??. PD: post 191, was really made by an iss astrounat or is it fake??
Streaming video is probably the #1 request ... but yea, it is more complicated to do for my setup. My guess is that post #191 wasn't really from the ISS ... although we've had surfers from Antartica before! ;-)
210 - United States - Sparks Nevada 39.572°N 119.617°W
I could tell you one reason he might not have them on 24x7 him and his family have the right to have there privacy.
211 - United States - Flushing New York 40.760°N 73.827°W
alek when are u gonna put up the pictures u took
OK - here's the picture of the Haunted Office - Dirk was busy doing homework, and Kyle decided to ham it up for the camera. I also did some test shots of the outside of the house earlier - these are trickier because there is a very narrow time frame when the exposure is just right in the fading light ... plus it's nice to have some clouds in the sky - hopefully tomorrow!
212 - United States - San Antonio Texas 29.471°N 98.514°W

A little patience please ... it's a bit of work to take & then review the pictures taken. Unfortunately, the clouds dissipated shortly before the dusk light (sky looks much cooler with clouds) ... so I'll probably reshoot the house pictures ... but here's one of the Grim Reaper Motorcycle Dude taken an hour ago.

218 - United States - Greeley Colorado 40.399°N 104.701°W
Nothing like stopping by Alek's for a bit of cheer, whether Halloween or Christmas. Great way to start the day. Best wishes to you and your terrific family! (Alek--any chance (and certainly not immediately) of posting some of your family's favorite Gluten-Free Recipes? Have a mom who has Celiacs and am always looking for great recipes to share!)
Thanks for the kind words and glad you enjoy the holiday fun. My wife makes some great blueberry and/or chocolate chip pancakes using rice flour - they are better than the "real" ones. You can try some of my yummy BBQ grilling recipes.

Hi Alek, not to be a troll... but did you know that the IP address is treated as personal information in Europe? Wouldn't it be a better idea to hide this data, or is it really important? Just a suggestion and have a nice halloween :)
239 - United States - Fort Smith Arkansas 35.339°N 94.383°W
Mr. G, are you guys expecting snow tonight? Looks like it has been raining all day and is only 39 degrees. Watch for slick spots on the roads tonight!!
Definitely cold and raining ... and yea, if the temperature will drop just a bit more, we'll have the first snow as I suggested back in post #192. Since it's dark and dreary, I've set things up to turn on an hour early for the European Surfers.
240 - United Kingdom - Manchester 53.500°N 2.216°W

Here's a picture of the front yard taken with a tripod mounted Canon 40D DSLR and 10-22mm lens positioned at the same location as webcam2 - bummer the D-Link doesn't have this good of image quality. Yours truly is standing between the skulls with a flashlight shining up into my face for a spooky affect. The red light in my left hand is the wireless remote that is triggering the camera. Shot at F/7.1, ISO 1600, and 0.6 second exposure which provides some motion blur on the passing car.

Obama is kicking booty tonight - go Dems!
Actually, there is an "Obama-Bot" that has electronically stuffed the ballot with over a 1,000 votes for the Democratic Nominee by a single IP address 184.108.40.206 which (ironically) is from Alberta, Canada. More info after the voting closes tonight and I'll be invalidating those votes. Ironically, in 2004, there was a "Kerry-Bot" that did the same thing. I guess Donkey's will do anything to win!
Update: More info on the 2008 Bots page, but that IP Address cast 1,163 votes for Obama (in 25 minutes), 277 votes for HULK, and ONE for McCain. So I invalidated the Obama and Hulk votes which means that person cast just one vote ... for McCain - D'OH! ;-)
Current Vote Totals are 6,716 for Obama, 7,484 for McCain, and 6,433 for the HULK - the Green Party Candidate needs to start making a SMASHING comeback!

A much stronger frost this morning than a week ago (see post #192) but no Coyote Poop on the driveway this time, nor any snow yet ... with a warming trend for the rest of the week. Looks like the Witch is huddling under the Grim Reaper Motorcycle Dude to try to stay warm.

I had some fun taking this picture tonight. Please note that no lights are on ... except for the full moon to the left per the shadows. This is a tripod-mounted 30 second exposure (you can see star trails in the hi-res original) so I had time to "draw" a BOO free-hand with a blue LED light and then turn a flashlight on myself.
Update: Here's time-lapse footage that shows the shadows from the full moon.

Hi Nice Display Was Just wondering If you every wurry about vandilism ? as that is one of the main things i would worry about
I did have my snowman ... uhhhh ... vandalized (!) in 2002 ... but fortunately, the biggest source of destruction is squirrels chewing on the wires. This summer, a neighborhood kid knocked over my trash can thinking he wasn't being watched - LOL! ;-) The webcams run 7x24 (even when the web page shows them offline) with archive footage, so lets hope there are no Grinch'es out there.

iwas wondering if u could put on the light a little early please, because us people in the uk love the lights so much but it is hard to stay up until midnight uk time 6pm usa time please please please many thanks alison peterborough uk
If you can make the sun go down sooner (so it's dark and the halloween lights are visible), I'd be all for turning things on early! I do sometimes turn it on early (especially if a cloudy day), but it's going to be darn sunny for the week - sorry.

Hi from Nashville, TN -- So your lights are carbon footprint friendly? how about that luxo-barge of a oldsmobile car? how friendly is that? lol I just made a contributiuon for celiac. stay crazy,.///-=jack=-
Nice to hear from your Jack - yea, the Delta 88 Convertible isn't the most fuel/carbon efficient car ... but I drive it less than a 1,000 miles/year. Plus the Hulk likes to drive in style and it's a ton of fun at parades - see post #169 - we ended up taking second place and the Cub Scouts had a blast. Thanks for making a donation for Celiac Disease Research and Roger on the staying crazy! ;-)

That must cost a fair bit running those lights,what with the fuel bills etc.Good on you Mr G.
It's a common misconception that the halloween display uses a lot of electricity. It's actually about a dollar/day - see the detailed circuit layout/electrical analysis on the main webcam page.
313 - United States - Massapequa New York 40.682°N 73.467°W
Alex is the halloween display is about a dollar a day, is the chrismas display around three or four dollars a day?????
It depends on how many lights ... or actually, how much amps are used ... plus the Christmas display is on for another hour since it is darker that time of the year. You can see last year's electrical analysis - ran about two dollars/day - my guess is 2008 will be similar.

You need to inflate the Inflatables. After all this is the week of Halloween. Where I come from if they are not inflated they are considered an EYE SORE. Which carries a stiff fine of 15 days and 15 dollars. Please do not make me snitch on you. Do the right thing.. Inflate
Yikes ... we got the inflatable fashion police after us! Rest assured that there will be some extra "stuff" this Friday on Halloween Day. Along those lines, I did a little maintenance in preperation and just replaced the X10 Super Socket in the Garage. Remember that X10 is typically used to turn lights on at dusk, and off at dawn ... rather than thousands of times a night like Internet Surfers are doing to my halloween display. So sometimes they blow out - listen to what that sounds like along with an explanation from me.

I appreciate the nice words #381 - chimney would be cool, but not offer protection from the elements. LOL #383 with the BG/Jobs comment. The boys were excited to fire up the Fog Machine tonight (after Dirk grabbed the Ben & Jerry's Cherry Garcia) so we did it in the Haunted Office. It's a lot more impressive in person than on the webcam, but still looks cool. Sorry, no X10 controls to turn it on & off! ;-)

I live in a family neighborhood, and needless to say, the crazy Halloween Decorations attract lots of trick-or-treaters. In fact, I spend a more for goodies than on electricity (~$30/month) for the display. In addition to treats for the kids (yes, not approved by the American Dental Association), I pass out dixie cup shots of Port, Bailey's, or Whiskey Egg Nog for the adults - similar to last year. Temperatures will be unseasonably warm this Friday, so expect a big crowd - it's a ton of fun!

While Frank and Homer tend to get most of the attention (especially because they are 8+ feet tall), lets not forget some of the smaller "members" of the display. SpongeBob Squarepants is a huge hit with the little kids ... and no Halloween display would be complete without a Witch.

Hey Alek, Looking at the office cam, you don't look too good, why you holding your head?

WOW - what a fun night. Over 200+ trick-or-treaters almost cleaned me out of candy as I was too generous early on. I also passed out plenty of shots of Bailey's, Port, and Egg Nog Whisky. And then there were a LOT of web surfers who surfed on by. I've uploaded some
time-lapse halloween movies of the action.
Typical of the trick-or-treaters that came by are these two kids of some
great friends. Frankenstain Jeffrey (standing before his name sake) with
a pirate booty bag and his brother Punk Rocker Drew with rockin' guitar.
I'll probably leave the webcams and X10 controls up one more night - heck, we gotta vote for Obama, McCain, or the Hulk. But then Halloween is over and it is time to get ready for Christmas.

Webcam2 is online 7x24, so during the day, you can "see" what is on the roof by the shadows ... so I thought it would be interesting to show how much lower the sun has moved. Both pictures taken at 1:30 in the afternoon from the same spot, and yes, that's the Hulk's shadow! ;-)

Yea, there was vote stuffing tonight on all three sides - I am checking the votes ... results soon.
23:27 Update: After tossing out the invalid votes, Obama wins with 21,966 votes, McCain is a close second with 21,821, and Hulk has 21,692 - here are the daily results. I was surprised how close it ended up being and it was a fun little contest - we'll do it again in 2012 ... and yes, the Green Party Candidate plans to come back and be SMASHING! In the meantime, get out and cast a real vote for your choice for president!

Halloween 2008 was again a lot of fun (too bad the Hulk didn't win the Presidental Election), but all good things come to an end, so I'm turning off blog comments until next September ... come back for halloween 2009. The christmas blog is open for comments and the christmas lights will go up in a few weeks and I hope to have the christmas lights webcam LIVE after Thanksgiving.
