I live in Colorado and the lack of rain and high winds make for a bad fire situation. I totally understand the banning of fireworks. I've enjoyed lighting off fireworks since I was a kid. The 4th is one of those days where I can feel like a kid again as I light another 36 shot display shell that cost me 70 bucks. Many years we've had so many storms that everything is green and dripping wet, so fireworks are safe. This year, total boredom but I saved 500 bucks. Here's a photo I took during a fireworks show on an Indian reservation in Nevada on Memorial Day.
