Raining Fireworks

We thought we had picked the perfect spot for viewing the fireworks last night. Just outside of the fairgrounds, on a nice patch of grass, with an easy enough escape route to get back home once the crowds dispersed. In fact, once the fireworks started, we were convinced that it was, indeed, a perfect spot.

And then we started feeling things drop. Like drops of rain, but dry. A spatter on the cheek, a few drops on the hair. Finally, Reese said, “Daddy! Look what just fell on my head!” A fuse, several inches long, had fallen out of the sky. For the rest of the presentation, we were sprinkled with ashes and debris. Not exactly the perfect way to watch 4th of July fireworks.

Luckily, I had taken my camera along and had lots of fun taking long-shutter-speed pictures of the sky.
