Good Morning and Happy Wednesday and Happy Fourth of July!
It is the Fourth of July! A time to blow up fireworks (safely), grill out and try not to die from heat stroke.
One year, kids on my street thought it would be a genius idea to celebrate this holiday by lighting EXPIRED fireworks in the street. Fun twist: Because they were expired, the fireworks exploded horizontally.
I know this because I was walking back to my house when one went off, barely missing me. The children laughed. I snarled. And a good time was had by not me. Just them.
If you would like to have a better Fourth of July than I did, check out all of the events and festivities happening this Independence Day around the area.
