Independence Day

With the weather here in this part of the country being cool and overcast with some light rain today, I wasn't sure if I wanted to go to see the fireworks with V and M tonight.

Sure it's the 232nd birthday of the United States - that little thing we call Independence Day. And what fun would this holiday be with out fireworks? Then I decided that we should go, since the last time I watched fireworks was with V and M - in 2005 and they were really looking forward to going with me.

The fireworks in Nashua began at 21:00 at Holman Stadium. We had to park about a mile away since the main parking lot and all of the streets close to the stadium were full. It took us about 30 minutes to walk to and from the stadium, which was actually fine, since it was good exercise and it did not rain the whole evening.

The fireworks actually lasted for a full 30 minutes and were excellent. Lots of bright colors and lots of loud noise. I was worried that we wouldn't get good seats on the lawn surrounding the stadium but we actually managed to find great seats. So good in fact that the fireworks were going off literally above our heads. We managed to have some of the firework debris/ashes land on our blanket and in our hair.


The pictures here are not from the fireworks display we saw tonight but rather just some random pictures I found when I googled images of fireworks tonight for this post.

I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July celebration, where ever you are.

Today is also Aphelion, which is when the Earth is as far away from the sun as it will get this year, a distance of 94,513,190 miles.
