Temperatures are going up and things are drying out.

It wasn't that long ago that we were all waterlogged and could not wait for the rain to end. It's understandable, we received so much rain so late in the season that some farmers had to switch crops. Even with that kind of moisture, it doesn't take that long for things to dry out when you have temperatures exceeding 100 degrees. What you get, in fact, is areas of dried-out and cracked mud.

These high temps could provide a little bit of a flashpoint for this 4th of July weekend, uh week-thing, since the 4th falls on Tuesday. Of course, fireworks are illegal inside city limits (which is a law respected by nobody) so some people enjoy either the city fireworks, while some opt for the fireworks show at Buffalo Springs Lake.

This year's 4th of July Fireworks will be actually held on the 1st. I guess that's convenient, but not really how the "4th of July works". I guess the good thing is that it will be less time for things to dry out, but it really wasn't that long ago that they set the hills on fire during the festivities (video below). It just seemed ironic for there to be so much fire so close to a (somewhat) large body of water. Fortunately, the damage was very minimal.

This year admission is $18 for adults and $10 for children. That's $2 more than the regular admission for adults and $4 more for kids. That's a $56 price tag for a family of four. I guess that's a decent price for an evening's worth of entertainment (if the kids don't fall asleep before the 10 p.m. show).

Anyhoo, we hope everyone has a safe, fun weekend, and here's the aforementioned video:
