    Ok. I wondered if it was just personal fireworks that was banned. Some are illegal in Canada.

    I know some states might ban them for fire safety concerns, and I figured CA might be one of those.

    For our Dominion Day celebrations, our town still set off fireworks but didn't want anybody around to see them. They were going to make sure they were high enough so everybody could see them but because of covid they didn't want gatherings.

    I never see the fireworks anyway. I'm usually in bed by the time it's dark enough here to see them anyway.

    I mostly just wondered because of Bill's comment about celebrating independence being a bad thing.

    There are people who live one or two streets over from me, who buy TONS of fireworks during the few weeks of the year they are available. Then they set them off randomly throughout the year. Sometimes it's one or two early in the evening, sometimes more and often in the middle of the night. They are the really loud ones, too. As far as I know it's not legal inside the city limits. We live just barely inside the city limits, too, so it's not a big deal for them to take them elsewhere but they don't.

    Also a lot of my neighbours were setting them off ALL NIGHT last night so I didn't get much sleep. I was falling asleep at work all day today.

    I have a sensory disorder and can't stand fireworks. I volunteered to work yesterday so I wouldn't have to hear them.

    I should hire you to sit with Jake. I think he has a similar malady.

    A lot of dogs and cats don't like loud noises. Our cats, all of them, used to come downstairs and hide in the basement during thunderstorms.

    Sometimes they slinked downstairs before we even knew a storm was coming.


    I am getting old and loud noises bother me, and I would likely have issues with fireworks, too.

    It's horribly inconsiderate of them to do it all night, as you said in your other post.

    We know when a storm is approaching by the way Jake acts. If I'm in my recliner, he'll hunker down under my footrest, and I have to remember not to sit up too quickly.
