    In the Kansas City area it’s so dry that many cities have banned any home fireworks, even smoke bombs. . And this is in a state where fireworks are sold year round. Only two rains in two months and the last 3 weeks ago and none in the forecast. Some of the city displays are still happening but many have been canceled in the rural areas where there is more dry tinder.

    Wedding on 7th for Bev’s granddaughter, relatives in from Oregon and New York state, lots of food, ice and drinks set up, too bad you live in Northern Michigan! But have a good one Maureen!

    PS: You have been demoted from your “National Geographic” status, black and white photos of fireworks is unacceptable! 🙂

    Last evening I got an early jump on the Fourth of July pie tradition. Amazing key lime pie at Chicago Joe’s. Feeling ready for the more traditional 4th favorite, home-made cherry pie later today.
