Most Underwhelming Fireworks. Ever.

We had the most underwhelming 4th of July fireworks ever. As you can see in the included photos (which I didn't take, thanks Leah!) there's a cloud of debris in the center of the fireworks area.

As the fireworks went on, and on, this cloud got larger and larger, to the point where we couldn't see a thing. It must have been the perfect combination of heat and humidity that made the fireworks totally flop. Of course, we could see other counties' fireworks shows without a problem - it was only the big DC show which was hosed.

I just felt bad for the folks who had been sitting there since 3pm waiting to see the show, only to be treated to the radio of fireworks.

  1. for our first 4th living in the DC area we attempted to watch them from a friends apt in our building that faces the mall... we had a great view of the Washington Monument but unfortunately the fireworks were blocked by another building.
