Last night MSP and I went to see the local fireworks, as I suspect many others will do tonight/tomorrow. I don't know why "they" chose the 2nd, but whatever. The thing is, they were quite good - not too flashy, not overly long, just enough to make you ooh and ahh and remember what it's like in a small town celebrating July 4th. Patriotic music blared over the loudspeaker, crowds ate ice cream, and the sky lit up with sparkly colors for a while.
Lifehacker, just in time, posted a link to "How Fireworks Work". Enjoy!
