The Fourth, a Day Early.

Plumas County in California, where I grew up, is a firecracker and amateur firework-free zone. We like our forests in one piece, not burned to a crisp, and that’s hard enough without people putting on their own fireworks extravaganza.

Kentucky though, they love their roadside firework stands. And the people in our current neighborhood seem to love ’em, too. Four different households, in less than half a mile, kept the skies lit up last night.

While I enjoyed the show, it’s still unsettling for me to see them going off in residential areas, so close to rooftops and tree lines.

Driving around after dark led to some spectacular photographs, though!
