Man's and Nature's Fireworks
A Happy Independence Day to all of our readers! I stepped outside tonight to watch the fireworks presided over by our local firefighters and got more of a show than I expected. That's because Nature was also lighting up the sky as a storm moved in. West of my location were the colorful flashes of fireworks and to the east some truly brilliant cloud and cloud to ground lightning. Finally, to those interested in American Flag etiquette, tomorrow (July 5) is the final full day of flying the flag at half mast in honor of President Reagan.
