I had worked on the deck several weeks ago with the Pressure Washer, cleaning the deck back to its original condition.
I knew that the fourth of July was coming up and I wanted it to be perfect for the fourth.
On the day of the fourth, our town always put on a big production of fireworks for as many people that want to come it is free to sit and watch.
Usually, there are over 5,000 people that show up for the event. But today, we had a huge storm come through that may have turned some people away. As the time of the event was to start a 6:00 p.m. another big rain came again. You could see people leaving expecting the event to be a washout.
Fortunately, for the ones that stuck it out the evening turned out to be cooler after the rain and the show was wonderful.
We had a few friends over, and the beautiful thing for us is that we have a deck side view. We can sit and watch the ducks on the lake and see the crowd of people, yet not be in the crowd at all.
