I remember when I was growing up. When my parents wanted to go out Christmas shopping I only had a few options. I could stay home alone with my sister. I could head over to a friend's house and hope they were doing something fun. Or I had to head over to my aunt's house.
Once that calendar changed to October everything fun and just a little bit spooky took precedence in Amarillo. We didn't even really wait until the start of the month. We are ready for all the fall activities.
With the rain that came yesterday in Amarillo also comes some weird stories. It may be totally unrelated but I feel the weirdness comes out when the rain does. We had some flooding in our city. We had some weird sightings at the Amarillo Zoo.
