Thunderstorms forced our Independence Day cookout indoors. The fireworks at the lake went on as scheduled but without our attendance due to the weather. Oh well, there's always next year. At least the ones on television were pretty good.

Living in a state where fireworks are legal gets pretty interesting around New Year's Eve and The 4th of July. The explosions were still going off all around us until well after midnight. They started about a week ago with a few salvos every evening. Then, at dusk last night, they were booming in every direction for hours on end. Quite raucous.
