I live in a hilly area surrounded by trees, we have been experiencing a drought and it was 100 degrees yesterday. A few days ago, our venerable old baseball stadium burned to the ground replete with a wall of flames estimated at nearly 100 feet high. Luckily, it was not in my hilly, forested area, otherwise the fire would have consumed too many houses to count.
When our city council voted to ban fireworks in certain areas, they did so, not to limit people's ability to play at their OWN risk, but to play at the risk of others.

If people would use common sense I would like them more. As is, I prefer organized fireworks, if at all. They are nothing more than a nuisance to me, don't care to watch, never ever buy any.

I love watching fireworks, and I'll have a free show tonight and probably tomorrow night too because I live in the country, where it's legal to set them off. Lots of "pasture parties" tonight too, I'm sure. But there is a 20% chance of rain I'm hoping for so I don't have to hose down my roof.
And I won't touch fireworks myself except sparklers. I didn't listen to my parents when I was 13 and nearly blew off my hand with a firecracker. And that was that.
