Shortest fireworks ever

July 7, 2013

The Fourth of July fireworks at the lake (which by the way is always on the evening of July third each year) was definitely underwhelming this year.

Well, because it was super foggy.

Fireworks in the fog

I was thinking about taking pictures with actual camera, then I decided against it. After taking this picture with my phone, with the fog and all the smoke from the fireworks itself there was just loud “boom” in the pitch darkness. No fireworks to be seen within like 10 minutes into it.

What a shame.

Happy Fireworks Day!

July 4, 2010

So since like early/mid June they’ve been shooting fireworks over the lake, but last night was definitely “the” biggest one of all. We didn’t do anything special – just stood by the windows in the living room and watched the show. Well, it was fun and interesting, but honestly, it’s hard to just ignore the fireworks with all the noise (since it pretty much echos), so yeah, we sort of “had” to “enjoy” it. I know I know, I probably sound so enthusiastic. Ha :P

The fireworks went on for almost an hour. Afterwards, it was fun watching the park and the road, as people were trying to go home. Traffic was pretty bad. It probably took an hour or so until most of the cars cleared – all while Chris and I were just sitting around in comfort of our home. Now, that’s the perk of paying extra in rent for the view*.

*note: actually there wasn’t much of choice since only few units were available in the building when we were looking for a place to live, so we sort of “had” to get the one with the lake view. But then again, the next door was also available, but that meant that it’s “closer” to the lake but the view was about the same, and that would’ve been few more bucks in rent. So yeah. That’s how we ended up with the apt with lake view – and you know what, it’s quite nice. I’m not complaining!
