Fireworks and raisng Cain

Recommended Posts

As we head into this week of July 4th I shall cuss the discovery of fireworks.  In this area of Montana we are blessed with many Canadian citizens who own property here or who cross the border to party and raise Cain and they like to celebrate Canada Day (today) with a healthy dose of fireworks also.  It started last Friday and the late night fireworks will no doubt continue through this coming weekend.  It is amazing that fireworks over a mile away can sound so loud at 1:00 AM.  Many pets do not handle the barrage very well and many prescriptions for anti-anxiety medications are purchased to relieve their stress.  Fireworks on federal and state lands are prohibited, for obvious reasons, but there is virtually no enforcement.  While sale of fireworks is legal here from several weeks before and one week after the 4th, it is limited to types sold.  That being said, many of the fireworks being set off are not of the legal variety and their origination is questionable.  The best I can hope for is the continued wet weather to help alleviate forest fire probability and maybe decrease some of the insanity.  I would also like to volunteer to present Darwin Awards to everyone injured "playing" with fireworks.  There are better ways to celebrate these holidays and not just use them as an excuse to party.

Each his own. We have a huge party and shoot a large amount off for everyone and celebrate our nations independence. I wouldn’t say we’re being careless
