A quiet Fourth of July

Record heat and extreme drought have cancelled most of the Fireworks displays in our area.  I haven't even heard a pop or crackle from the neighbors--who are no doubt worried about what a stray spark could do to their yard or house.  The local news featured a demonstration by the fire dept. of just how quickly the grass could be set ablaze by a sparkler.  There will still be fireworks in St. Louis if we care to make the drive--one advantage of raving a wide river.  They shoot the fireworks off of several barges stationed in the middle.

Maybe we'll do something really old fashioned like crank some ice cream.
