It’s 9:30pm, I have It’s A Wonderful Life on TV. But I can hardly hear it because the sound of fireworks exploding all around me is deafening. I have perhaps occasionally exaggerated on this blog, but I am not exaggerating now. I swear. This pounding has been constant since just before dark. Big fireworks, huge booms like cannons and bright sparkly displays everywhere you look. Pretty fun. I hope Santa and those reindeer have quick responses… WOW. One just went off that made me jump in my seat… could be a long night.
