We had our neighborhood block party last night instead of today due to people having to work Monday. We were only shooting them off until about 10pm, though. One of the neighbors went to Georgia and bought illegal fireworks (in FL anything that launches or explodes is illegal, which leaves basically only the ones that shoot sparks from the ground). Someone called and complained, a cop that lives in the neighborhood came around to tell us but overlooked it saying "things look alright here"... the launching tube was in plain sight of his car!
Someone just let off a huge mortar down the street... sounded like a bomb! I hope they don't set our house on fire!!!
The kits aren't really affected, but Mika did spend about a half hour jerking around to look at the window every time one went off at first. We have several boxes of sparklers left we'll go out a finish off in a minute.
