Isn't that the point? The 4th of July is a reenactment of bombings. Pure and simple symbolism.



I think OP is pointing out the contrast between this year and others while asking if that's the same case with other members where they're at.


Right on..


This year it’s much more active than in the past.

Ive never seen fireworks like that, ever. Not even at shows.

Literally as far as my eyes could see.

Pretty spectacular, honestly.

Fireworks are a reflection of internal emotion.

Thankfully, this is a representation of FREEDOM!

CHEERS to that!

The reality we live in.... WOW....

Get organized with your community. It’s the only path to success..

Fear is the mind killer.

My neighbors have certainly dropped a few bucks on the pyrotechnics.

None are close enough, to spook our livestock... so, let them have at it.

Our society seems to have lost the ability, to just relax and have some fun....

Chill out. Have a beer. Celebrate our Independence. Be excellent to each other...

Lots of people having fun in my neck of the woods. You know who doesn't like non-stop explosions? (Among others,) 10 month old babies.

I don't mind them until they set off the large boomers after 11pm on our block, but the dogs get freaked out with some of them. Last night someone set off what sounded like a blasting cap, our old neighbor had one from when he was in the military and it was the same type of sound. Those are a bit much that late.

Agree about the time factor.
When Michigan caved to the fireworks stores and made the crazy law for many days of fireworks per year, and really late hours, they let the genie out of the bottle.

11pm or midnight on weekend holidays seems plenty late to me!!!!

Round here..

It started at a bit before sunset and ended at 10:30. There were still the normal remnants after that until about 2 (normal yearly stuff). Basically a semi-pro show every fourth (heh) house.

Ive certainly never seen fireworks of that quality outside of pro shows. It wasnt completely there, in terms of height, but close. Some houses though.. were quite impressive. Better than many municipalities. And the sheer scale of it happening everywhere on the front range is something Ill never forget.

On one hand.. Felt real bad for my dog. On the other.. I got multiple semi-pro shows within a couple hundred feet of where I was standing and as far as my eyes could see.

Just to post the vid again. Not my video.. Had I known, I would have gotten my 4K rig setup and my phone was busy playing white/pink/etc noise for the dog

It was a staggering thing to witness.

Already being spun in the media/social media, of course. I think we can expect a downplaying of the true scale and volume of fireworks across the nation, and really hammering how "unsafe and selfish" it all was.

I said it elsewhere, but the beauty I find in it is that while everyone had their own motivations.. They were all united in an action that isnt "media/authority/expert" approved. A whole dissertation could probably be written on that..

Nowadays, that means something. And on this scale.. Its something special.

Beyond that, in my area at least, everyone was incredibly considerate as it got later and some even went around giving a heads up (literally lol) to people in the area beforehand. They actually went door-to-door!
