    Usually I look forward to long weekends because I don't take a lot of time off, plus they are so few and far between (I only get 6 paid holidays per year, just the major federal holidays). Not this long weekend though. My neighborhood (and really, most of the neighborhoods in the 'burbs) are filled with assholes that feel the need to set off fireworks continuously. Firstly, they are illegal and the fines start at $1,000 for your first offense. Second, it's dry as fuck and you would think these morons would at least the common sense to know you could start a fire. But no, they think it's their "right" to set off fireworks. And we're not talking about firecrackers and sparklers, they are setting off the professional quality shit all night long. You can't even buy this shit in Colorado nor can you order it by mail because they are illegal. These assholes drive to Wyoming and buy them and bring them back across the border.

    Two of our dogs are completely terrorized by the fireworks, so this means none of us will get any sleep at all this weekend. We can't leave the windows open and even with closing the house up, it can only muffle the sound so much. It's beyond ridiculous. And the cops do absolutely nothing about it. Sure, they are out on patrol, but unless they witness someone setting them off, they won't do anything. And the assholes setting the fireworks off do them in waves to avoid getting caught by the cops. It takes every fiber of my being to not want to drive around the neighborhood all weekend long and just execute anyone I see setting them off. Every year I just hope that at least one of these assholes blows their fingers/hands off in an accident.

    It's been really dry here too, I'm concerned about possible fires. Ohio used to have weird laws about fireworks, you were allowed to buy them here but had to sign paperwork stating you would take them out of state to use them. I think they lifted the restrictions recently.

    The only thing legal in Colorado are sparklers and fireworks that do not leave the ground (firecrackers/poppers/etc), everything else is illegal.

    You would think people here would learn after the Marshall Fire that happened here around 6 months ago that burned down nearly 1,000 homes, but unfortunately people are just fucking stupid.
