Firework Sounds

It has been legal to use fireworks here since June 29th. What a strange ruling.

What is more unusual is that we have heard hardly any noise from fireworks until late Tuesday night. The hours for noise are from 8:00 a.m. until 11:00 p.m. The first ones we heard were about 3:00 a.m.

Yesterday was quiet. Today we have heard several loud booms. Jill hears them and so she gets a chewy that is supposed to help. Jack is not bothered.  The ornery, bully Jill has been under my feet, in the bed with Lee and in the dark bathroom. Poor girl. I feel so sad for all the dogs that have fears from the loud bangs.

I remember setting off the black snakes and holding those sparklers. My dad held the Roman candles.  Lots of fun for kids if they stay safe.

Happy Fourth of July.


  1. We had the black snakes and sparklers as a child too. That was all. Nothing else.
    Fireworks are illegal in town but that hasn't stopped people. Here at the lake it was awful last night for sweet Chloe. She's terrified and her anxiety pills I gave her didn't even seem to help. I can only imagine how bad it will be tonight.
    Don't get me wrong, I love the beautiful fireworks, I just don't get the loud "boom" ones that aren't even pretty. I think I'm old! Ha!

  2. Poor Jill! Little Elvis doesn't like fireworks either, we are having some big booms down on the lake. Miss Miney is deaf so she is not bothered, Fireworks...I am not sure of the Laws here. :)
