Sorry ... I do not typically give my Ghost Walk when rain is forecast. And rain was forecast that evening.

Andy is a very engaging storyteller. A pleasant route to walk with many different types of ghost stories. Look here for history, characters, and quirks (which I think is a good thing), rather than blood, guts, and gore. Overall entertaining and appropriately-paced.
