I was surprised to find that no one set off fireworks out in their yard/street this year; everyone seemed to have gone to big public displays, which we could barely hear, so it went really well. Only had mildly nervous animals instead of freaking out animals.
[QUOTE=BasqueMom;5704580] Wish each county would designate an area for folks to go to to set off their
own fireworks, perhaps with fire truck on hand since it's always dry here this time of year and let the rest of the county get some sleep and spare their animals and livestock the terror.[/QUOTE
That's a great idea, but I suspect the fireworks-setting crowd wouldn't like the idea of (gasp) government control. God forbid anyone try to curb their instinct for self-destruction and property damage.
