The Pros And Cons of Having People Set Off Fireworks

We live about 1 block from where the coyotes enter from the Arroyo. It is not uncommon to see them on our street on a nightly basis looking for an easy target. Last night as the fireworks were going off all around us, my husband noticed that a coyote was running back towards the Arroyo. My guess was that it was trying to get away from all the noise. The only problem is that the coyote will be back.

Not only are people getting injured from setting off fireworks, they are also setting things on fire. Last night was the first time in living here for 32 years, that we have had an incident as a result of those fireworks. Someone threw some sort of firework in the middle of the street. The next thing we know is that our neighbor is ringing our doorbell. There was a fire at the top of our street. Fortunately for the homeowner, is that the local fire department was close and that it was an Italian Cypress that was lit up like the 4th of July and not their house. We had 7 sheriffs and the local fire department.

An upside is that we can see the fireworks from the Rose Bowl. Not the best seat in the house, but still nice. I took more videos, but this was the finale.
