Gabriel behind the sign

Hey scientists! Was there something about the air Wednesday night that carried sound particularly well? I think that I was hearing professional shows because they had so many explosions, went on for so long (hour and a half) and stopped so abruptly at 11:30pm.

Pretty sure I was hearing both Kenmore and Edmonds, plus a lot of unauthorized intermittent explosions.

No - I did not enjoy the 4th of July, thank you very much. It took only an hour and a half to turn me into a curmudgeonly old lady, ready to yell at the neighbor kids to get off my lawn.

I'm ready to carry petitions to ban all fireworks.

Here's a shot of the Kingston fireworks from Jan Hansen. She was still cheerful after the shows, but she's a much nicer person than I am.

Grrrr

Once again, we learned that this ordinance is meaningless and not enforced. Next year, save money and skip the useless signs.

This year seems worse for fireworks than previous. Just wish my neighbors with their pious yard signs proclaiming their inclusivity would extend that to those of us with pets or PTSD.
