Happy Fourth of July, San Antonio!
Growing up in Philadelphia, the Fourth of July always seemed to have a special significance to me. Maybe it was the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, maybe it was the backyard BBQs and fireworks, but it really is one of my favorite holidays. Summer time in full swing and always something going on – the Fourth of July is always a busy day of fun and laughter. Whatever your take on the holiday, have a great one and be safe.
Of course, thanks to the drought, there won’t be much gazing skyward this evening, but as with every year, regardless of the ban, I’m sure there will be a few out there that light a few fireworks off. If you do choose to ignore the ban, please be careful. Don’t light them and shoot them toward that grassy field next door or your neighbor’s house. We all think we can get that little fire under control, but wildfires have always told us otherwise. Just try to not burn anything down…please.
I also saw a lot of police out there last night. Pulled up behind a car, red lights flashing, as they investigated whatever it was they pulled them over for. Please think before you grab your keys. If you need to think about it, it’s probably not a good idea. Call a friend, call a cab, call someone – don’t make this a holiday you’ll never forget for all the wrong reasons. As a side note, it’s also a no-refusal weekend so if the cops pull you over, more than likely they’re going to check you, so play it safe and don’t take the risk.
Have a terrific Fourth of July San Antonio!
