Our country celebrated our birthday in grandstyle around the country.In some of the major cities,great fireworks.
Lots of concerts,we had a excellent concert with Jennifer Hudson the star of the show.We had a bried interruption in the middle of the show as a severe storm was baring down on the esplanade,so they evacuated everyone into a nearby road tunnel,but the storm fell apart and never threatened the show,so the concert went on,and so did the spectacular fireworks.
The midwest sweltered through the celebrations,the middleatlantic celebrated in the dark.
Several people were struck by lightning, 3 people in New Hampshire,2 people in South Boston.
A house party in New Hampshire where home fireworks are allowe,suddenly turned disasterous when an errant firework display landed on their deck where a whole stack of fireworks were sitting and they exploded injuring a bunch of people including children.In fact one 8 month old girl is severely burned and still in intensive care in a medically induced coma. This is a reason why most states don't allow them,because of mishaps like this.
I was staining and working to complete my molding all day,so was too tired to go anywhere. Waltham does have fireworks,but I was not up to it.
I will be very glad when this is done.
