Holy fuck. For some unknown reason, the amount of people setting of fireworks in this area has skyrocketed (no pun intended)! There must be hundreds of people setting off fireworks from my vantage point. And I'm not talking about the penny-ante kind but the bigger, launch-in-the-sky fireworks that used to be limited to county fairs and city parks. It's been almost constant since 8 p.m. (more than two hours!), so that means these people are serious about their fireworks.

I noted the use of big-scale fireworks last year, but that was only a dribble compared to this year. Did someone have a fire sale on fireworks or something? It's really perplexing. The house here sits on the side of a hill, so I have a panoramic view of the proceedings. Still, it's a little disturbing and I wonder whether it will last much longer. Getting to sleep might be a problem if it goes on unabated.

Now for Another Hot Guy.
