Default Fireworks Ban [Partly OT]

Some of you may have heard that we're having problems with brush fires here
in Texas. The governor has likened the state to a "tinder box" because it
has been so dry for so long. They speculate that the cause of the brush
fires are people ignoring the burn ban.

Because of this aerial fireworks have been banned in Harris county (Houston
and surrounding areas), and all adjacent counties. I'm *REALLY* hoping that
people obey this ban, but just in case we're going to soak our roof down
with a hose tomorrow night. [I've never liked the simple "bang" type
firecrackers (Black Cats and Cherry Bombs), although I like to watch a
choreographed fireworks display.]

The girls are also hoping that they won't have to be disturbed by all that
whistling and banging outside their house.

Hugs,

CatNipped

Default Fireworks Ban [Partly OT]

I live in north Texas, and I work with several people from a couple of fire
areas, I won't find out until Tues. how they are doing. I saw the smoke from
one before I found out about all of them. I live in the country and we have
cracks in the ground you could fall in. Who would be stupid enough to burn
in 25 mile an hour winds even if the burn ban wasn't on????

Head butt to you and yours, Lisa.

Just like I've learned not to ask "How can it get any worse?", I've also
learned not to ask, "How stupid can some people be?", because you *will* be
shown! ;

Two examples come to find:

drunk campers, like the ones who started the colorado deer creak
canyon fire.

tobacco junkies. You think an extreme fire hazzard is going to stop a bunch
of selfish addicts? they can't even be bothered to put their trash in an
appropriate container, just like heroin junkies leaving needles on the beach.

Speaking of stupidity. They announced that people who shoot off guns on new
year's eve here in Houston will be arrested and convicted. They put a
reporter on the street to get people's reaction to this announcement. One
woman actually said, "Oh I know that bullets shot into the air can come down
and kill people, but it's a tradition in our family to shoot off a gun on
new year's eve, so we're going to do it anyway."

AARRGGHH!!!!!

"Fireworks"???? Stop me if I'm wrong, but I thought this
was the first of January, not July! Did I lose six months
somewhere?

Maybe it's just the south, but I thought they celebrated the new year all
over by firing off fireworks!

Thank you, the same to you. I drive to work and watch cigaretts come flying
out the windows of cars.
