I’m happy to report that the fireworks were quieter this year. It seems that the neighbors didn’t shoot them off as many nights as in previous years. We only heard them for about a week. They also didn’t shoot them off as late at night at some other years.
I’m not sure what this means. Are my neighbors getting older and not as interested in shooting fireworks? Has budgetary constraints entered into the picture? That doesn’t seem possible since the stands advertise “buy 1 get 4 free”. How do they make any money at that price?
