I normally do not have an opinion one way or the other about firecrackers. This year is an exception, though. My neighbors have been setting them off since a week before Independence Day. I was quite amazed at how well my cats behaved with them going off at the most random times, especially the one yesterday afternoon that seemed to be right outside my apartment.
I worked a good part of Saturday. I had hoped to get in touch with a couple friends and see what they were doing after I got off work, but no one responded. So, I spent a quiet evening at home with the cats. I was highly amused by the thunderstorm that rolled through the area, though. The weatherman had been assuring people all week that there was a very low chance of storms on Saturday.
