This big portable water tank that the Forest Service parked in our yard 3 weeks ago to help protect our property for the local giant wildfire is called a "pumpkin" by all the fire fighting folks. It seemed only logical to "jack it up."



It's marine vinyl, attached with two-sided foam tape. When I told one of the crew leaders about my plan, he got a kick out of it. He's since ended his "tour," so hopefully the new lead for our area has the same attitude.  Roll Eyes

With any luck, we will no longer need this (and the other two non-pumkin tanks) by the beginning of October, so I don't really think of it as a Halloween decoration - just the obvious way to spruce up our pumpkin.  Wink

Thanks! A week and a half ago a neighbor with a slightly smaller (i.e. shallower) pumpkin threw a party in his! Called it the Pumpkin Plunge Pool Party and several of us got in and ate snacks off a board tied to an inner tube. Gotta find or make a giggle where you can in these situations if you're lucky enough to be able to.
