Groton has decided to leave it up to parents whether to take their children out trick-or-treating tonight, despite many houses without power and some streets with downed trees and power lines.
Jeff Williams, deputy director of the Department of Emergency Management, said he doesn't think you can really cancel Halloween, though streets with safety hazards such as downed power lines would be closed to trick-or-treaters.
Some other towns have rescheduled trick-or-treating, including Stonington, which set the date for Nov. 16. Towns in the greater New Haven area have postponed trick-or-treating until Nov. 7.
What do you think? Will you take your kids out trick-or-treating? Can you suggest some safe neighborhoods in Groton - ones without downed wires or trees?
