But around 3 p.m., a silvery crack began to appear in the northwest sky. I left the Humane Society and as I drove home, the crack grew larger. By the time I was up our road, the sun was out! This was amazing! I think everyone involved in Darkwing had a little magic they were working that day, and collectively beat the bad the weather back. It was a bit breezy, but we ended up packing them in and raising enough money to give a record-breaking $11,000 to The Children's Advocacy!
Sometime after 11 p.m. as we all left our scenes, it began to drizzle lightly.
A video of this year's haunt is currently in production. Meanwhile, check out some of the amazing actors this year:
But this post is still about the whirlwind. Luckily, back at the hotel the hot tub was steaming. Ahhh... temporary respite. The next day I slammed out five Black Bear menus worth of research, stumbled bleary-eyed back to Zen Sushi (yeah, it's that good) and hit the hot tub again. After a quick visit with my mother in Redding, I made it home the following day, only to get up and help strike the sets the next day at Darkwing. The next couple of days are kind of a blur that cleared up at about 9 p.m. on Election night. Then I could finally relax.
