Corralitas Drive: Practicing For Halloween

Photo: Corralitas Neighbor, October 24, 2016.   Just a reminder, slow down while driving our hillside streets.  There are children, animals and people who may not be able to move quickly in the roadway.  Keep your kids and animals inside and, or on a leash this weekend.  Expect lots of revelry for the holidays.

Please show some respect for your neighbors if you are hosting a party.  Turn the noise down after 10PM, not everyone shares your taste in music.  The hills are notorious for the "canyon effect" of sound bouncing around and being louder across a canyon than right next door.

Don't encourage unwanted guests at your party.  If your party is outdoors, be sure to clean up all food trash the same night, or the rats, skunks, opossum, raccoons and coyotes will make a bigger mess of your yard than you left it the night before.  And they will keep returning, looking for more.

Have a safe and sane Halloween and Dia de los Muertos.
