It was certainly a loud Fourth. My town passed an ordinance a few years ago allowing fireworks and there were always a couple of folks shooting them off. Last evening though, there were at least six including the neighbor across the street and a guy two houses over doing the heavy-duty ones. It had rained all day Sunday so luckily fires weren't a concern. On the downside, they were scaring the crap out of the gf's elderly horse. I was outside giving him cookies and talking to him until 10:00 to calm him down. Half expected to find him dead of a heat attack.
