    4th of July Activities

    One our local towns has cancelled all 4th of July activities, except the fireworks. Temps are expected to be the highest we've had in this century. Yep, that wasn't a typo, century. I'm hoping they'll cancel ours too. It's just too hot to enjoy it. I told dh we'd go to the parade, but that's it. My dd doesn't do well with heat, makes her stomach queasy. Any rumor of that happening where you live?

    Our town and several others around have called off the fireworks. We are still having the concerts and such, but I doubt they are well attended.

    They are cancelling fireworks around here because of the dryness and fear of starting fires!

    Suppose to be 100 degrees tomorrow in Wisconsin. We might go watch the fireworks from our air conditioned car tomorrow night.

    Fireworks can still be shot off in out county - but surrounding counties have cancelled them due to the drought - and so blasted hot - I am staying inside - too hot to enjoy anything outside

    No fireworks here; not even public displays, and the law enforcement will be STRICTLY enforcing the ban, due to our fire as well as the others in CO.

    The only activities we have in our town are the car races and fireworks. Fireworks are only allowed in town with a $5000 fine outside city limits. This means that there is a big tailgate party at Walmart every year....

    They'll be having fireworks in our town. They shoot them over a lake. We have a neighborhood parade with a firetruck leading the way. The parade just goes around the block twice. It was hot and it was only 9 am. I had enough time between rounds to run inside and get a battery powered fan.

    Same here in Aurora CO . No fireworks display, just to hot and dry. Fires still burning North and South of us. So many people burned out, very sad. May you all have a safe holiday.

    A big fireworks display in a nearby town but too crowded and hot to go for me. The kids were all here Sunday for a cookout and then left for the lake until tomorrow. I have three sewing friends coming over Thursday to sew with me. DH is home until Monday so he is out and about, in and out. He always has something going on to occupy his time. I think today is figuring out why the window washing contraption is not working like it used to. LOL.
    Got fabric?
