Not quite right
This is what the fourth of July is supposed to be like. But instead, it's eerily quiet. It doesn't feel like Independence day at all, actually. We're under a burn ban, and this year because of the drought, it extends to fireworks and charcoal grills. What's the 4th without fireworks and BBQ? This is the first year in a long time that we didn't buy a bunch of fireworks for the kids. Usually we brag about how we can shoot them off right in our own driveway because we're not in city limits. But not this year - there's not a pop to be heard anywhere.
