Fireworks and Awnings

Just a note to those that might be in an area of fireworks. Might be a wise idea to bring in the slides and awnings. We are in a CG where the sky will be lit up with everything you can imagine. Indian fire works that sounds like dynamite going off and every kind of firework imaginable (it's legal here...or the authorities just turn their heads?) We had a camper here the last time and we left the back awning out. Next morning we had a burn hole in it. This time we'll bring in the slides and awnings, turn up the radio so the dogs don't go bizzerk and ride it out. Happens here every year....but the fishing too good not to be here.

Thanks, Hadn't given thought to that. Needless to say, I've made a mental note.

I'm still working on Firewords; is when DW is mad? I've had more awning damage from nearby campfires than fireworks.

Firewords are the result of drinking too much firewater.

Story about those that just don't think about what can cause fires:
We were down in Key West performing at Pirates In Paradise. Part of what we do is invasions. Yep firing black powder cannons, rifles and pistols from on land and off of ships. We are very careful about where and how we are firing because that is very hot black powder coming out the end of those things. One time we had a bar/restaurant ask us to shoot at the boats from the roof top bar area. We went up early to look over the place and realized that where they wanted us to shoot from had an awning right underneath us. First thing we asked for was water, a lot of it. They gave us a little drinking glass a piece of it and did not want to give us more than that. Needless to say after we started shooting and the bartender realized what was happening he went ahead and gave us more but by then it was too little too late. The manager later on realized that there were burn marks and stuff in the awning and wanted the festival to pay for it. They proceeded to let the bar know that they were told what would happen and were asked to help to try to stop the burn holes and marks and they did not so no the festival would not pay for it.

Some people just don't get that it is burning stuff coming out of those things. They should not have the fireworks that close to people and there is probably no rules or laws to stop it from happening that close.

We are on the West Coast in a town that has a celebration called Fun Days a week after the 4th of July. The town celebrates it's anniversary. We are here on the 4th and the fireworks are not even a close second to what happens here a week later. Plus the town is situated between two Indian Reservations that sell just about any kind of fireworks you can afford. It's quite the specticle with people coming from all the neighboring towns to blow off all their fireworks along with the main firewords the town sets off. This morning there were embers and cardboard paper from blown up rockets all over every thing. Even the boats moored in the harbor got snowed on. But awnings and slides were in, radio was blasting and the shihtzues made it threw it. Got up this morning and caught a nice King and pulled up two dungeness crab in the crab pot......all is well.
