On a different note, my family and I were going to be spending the holiday visiting family near St. Louis. Practically all fireworks displays have been canceled! This is a major bummer but since the conditions in the midwest have been brutal in terms of drought and fires, I can understand the reasoning. It's a shame for all those that have been suffering through the worst of it.
