The news mentioned the possibility and Stormy mentioned dry conditions where she lives as well.
So far they are just planning on having extra fire personnel available, and to wet down the grass prior to shooting them off downtown.
It's very dry here in Michigan. Lawns are yellow, like they would normally be in August. Even plants that normally flower in August are flowering now. Fireworks will go on - they are on lakes, so we sit on the beach & the fireworks come from a barge out in the lake, so it's not a problem.
Nothing is cancelled here as of right now (in Kentucky....south central area) but it IS dangerously dry. There's a fireworks ban in the county and if caught using them you can be fined. Then there are certain times they can be used in the city.
raetonycass....please, PLEASE send some of that rain south...and fast!! We desperately need it.
Yes. There are whole lists of areas around here that you are prohibited to shoot off fireworks. I smell smoke now as we 'speak'. There are so many fires around us (thankfully not *right* here right now) it's scary. Yet I hear neighbors setting them off. Hope they don't start any fires. Why even take a chance??
I honestly can't remember the last time it rained.
