I just read an article that in Indiana there are 10 counties enforcing a ban on fireworks due to extreme drought conditions. I find this to be a great idea but also a little sad that common sense should have to be enforced.
Here in O'Fallon MO, it is bone dry, and we do not have to establish a new "ban" or ordinance, since one already exists. Yet the question remains to be seen if it will be enforced or not this year. So far, from the fire works that I have already heard, my guess would be not.
I wonder how many people will get hurt this year and how much property will get damaged while people are expressing their patriotism?
