It just doesn't feel like Fourth of July without fireworks. Not an illegal boom anywhere. And watching it on TV? So not like being there.

At least the food & the friends are still awesome. But next year? I really hope it rains.

It really was. We even turned off all the lights in the living room to see if that helped, but it really didn't.

*curses lack of rain*

No fireworks? But why? That just seems silly. I think the entire state of Minnesota would drive to either Wisconsin or South Dakota and buy tons of fireworks that are illegal here if they ever got rid of our firework shows XD

LOL. I don't even know the closest place that would have been selling them.

We're just having a really, really, really horrible drought. Everything is super dry and dead, and even though the state said cities could still hold firework shows if a professional company put them on, most cities were worried and canceled them. I was surprised there weren't any illegal ones going off, but I'm sure the cops were on high alert for them, so maybe people just didn't want to risk it. Or, you know, drive 10 hours to another state to buy them :)

Next year, though, if we're still in a drought, I'm totally going to have to go visit someone for Fourth of July. No fireworks was way, way, way unacceptable!

Ahhhhh that makes sense. I thought you were saying that you hope it rains for 4th of July, not that it rains so theres no drought. I forget that down south you're having those horrid problems with it, since we've gotten rain and cold galore up here (wish I could send you some, to be honest).

Most of us, when we shoot off illegal fireworks, do it over some of our, oh, 10,000 or so lakes. XD When I was younger we set them off on our docks over the lake so if anything happened the lake put them out. But I suppose thats not really an option for you guys.

I'm the worst, because I saw this line and your Sad Addison icon, and thought yesssss! She wrote a Fourth of July story!

Anyway. Hope you get lots of rain soon. We just had a freak 15-minute storm; I'll try to maneuver it your way.
