We live in a rural area (about 15 miles from any town, in any direction) and last night I saw more fireworks than I have in years! It was great! I almost didn't go out to the top of the hill to watch for fireworks, and I thought, well, it's only once a year, so I did. I saw fireworks from at least 4 different locations!
I had to keep moving around to view different locations because of the trees. Sometimes I could hear them but not see where they were coming from. But anyway, after years of barely seeing any fireworks on the 4th and almost giving up on it, it was a great show last night. Once I was walking back towards the house, trying to see where fireworks were going off (because I could hear them) and some critter was running in front of me. I thought maybe it was a rabbit. I turned on my flashlight and it was a skunk! And I scared up another large animal on the back few acres, it went crashing through the brush. I think it was an elk or a deer.
So I had fun last night! I was even watching fireworks through the binoculars (because they were really far away).
