Fireworks Preview

The fireworks started lighting the sky a couple of nights ago.

One odd fact about Temple City is that it is the only city in this area where fireworks are legal. When we lived in Pasadena, we used to visit friends in Temple City each 4th of July.

However, as a resident I find that I look at the whole thing a bit more skeptically.

Either I'm growing old and less tolerant or it seems that it has gotten pretty crazy around here in the last couple of years with what appears to be professional grade rockets shooting off in a neighborhood fairly dense with buildings and trees, etc.
