Ashes from fireworks
Saturday, July 5th, 2003
The fireworks finale last night sent a rain of ash down on us. L recovered a scrap of paper fireworks casing from our blanket and hauled it home. “I like the smell.” We sat with families Locke Locke and Srmecs. Spent all day yesterday in the neighborhood pool.
While running through a swamp this morning, I wondered why we didn’t get munched by mosquitoes last night. Could it be that mosquitoes are drawn upward by the flash and roar and carbon dioxide… and then obliterated by the next round of flashes?
