Default Eventful 4th

So theres this big fireworks show in this town that is supposed to be the 2nd best in Idaho, anyway we head over to the ford dealership since that was the only place where there was not people. Actually in a field behind the ford dealership. Anyway we show up just in time for the show.









so its a pretty decent fireworks show.


anyway all of sudden I hear someone scream fire and look behind where we were sitting and theres this grass fire about 50 yards off. then everybody starts running. Keep in mind this is right in the middle of town, in an undeveloped field.


the fence on the left is for the ford dealer lol.


note the gas station LOL.














i'd say it was a good 4th, at least nobody got hurt that I know of.


No ford emblems were hurt either.

Try working until 12 AM every year for the last five years straight. ( it sucks)

Hans, how far out of control did that fire get?

That is just plain wrong!!

We went to Pickwick Dam and watched the fireworks over the Tennessee River. It was a beautiful night and the fireworks were awesome!! Wish you could have been there

We went to the fireworks at Handdrumman'* place.

He let the local ametuers across the street and around him light some off...then showed them up with his own display.

Toasty and I looked at each other as stuff was raining on us... we are ok...lol
Something large hits with a thud about 2 feet away.....we are ok...lol
A part of a firework comes down before fully going off near the PA system about 30 feet away... then blammmmmmo it goes off. ..... overall...we are still fine and unharmed...lol
