    Nothing like a rainy, low cloud 4th to quash the fireworks. You can bet that over the next few days the folks will be afirin’ them off though and it’ll be damp so few, if any, associated fires.

      This is what my town was like yesterday. It was wild. Of course we only have 70,000 residence so it was on much smaller scale. Never heard a single siren.

      Awesome evening sitting with my little dog on my front stoop.

        We have legal fireworks and folks usually come out and fill the air with them on the 4th and New Years Eve. Very little last night, wet and low clouds, if it’s dry tonite many may be out sharing.

        We’re told the county population’s just about 56,000 and the county area is about 820 square miles. Take out the Big City and a couple of housing developments and density’s rather sparse so we’re pretty well up to having an explosive party without interference.

            I can’t believe how sensitive I’ve become to all of the ambient noise in the city. When I go back the noise is so obvious and irritating that I try to get out as fast as I can. The silence here IS golden.

              I believe you, I grew up in Chicago and when I go back I can’t believe how noisy it is all of the time, didn’t noticed when I lived there.

              Thing here are relatively quiet but nothing like country or island quiet.

              I have friend’s with a house on Washington Island, that is quiet, beautifully quiet and peacefully dark, literally can’t see your hand in front of your face on a moonless night.

    I’ve been reading and hearing people (conservatives and liberals) stating that President Trump’s two speeches were low energy.

    I would suggest that President Trump is on war footing.

    The silence before the storm. We are seeing bridled anger not low energy or tiredness.

    “Concentrate your energy and hoard your strength.” – Sun Tzu

    Note that President Trump’s people used Chester Bennington’s “In the End” in one of his campaign commercials.

    Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell were both sexually abused as boys, they were working together on an expose of high profile pedophiles, they committed suicide within 2 months of each other. Their project was “lost”.

    Many on the more conspiratorial side believe that Chester is the son of the deviant John Podesta. I think more likely they just happen to look like father and son, but I’m open to being wrong, given Podesta’s deviancy and Chester’s mental health struggles due to his childhood.

    Dan Scavino always is ahead of the game, he always holds the carrot.

    My favorite thing about Scavino is that the Left has still not realized just how dangerous that he is 😎.

    Mornin’ everyone. Boy, I sure needed that speech and flyover last night. What a great show our President put on. And, I loved seeing him standing there with his gorgeous, sweet First Lady.

    Is anybody here using Chrome? I have just recently started using it and now there is a popup box that shows up on the lower right hand side of my screen. It is some stupid news thing and you can close or join (or something, I forget). I click close and it goes away, and then the whole screen is taken over by the news thing. I can find no way to get rid of it.

    Seems that the Washington State Police decided it was OK to totally interrupt the traffic on I-5 on the 4th, preventing Seattle area travelers from using it. They barricaded a big chunk of it so that BLM protesters could have a party up there. It was billed as a protest but if you look at the videos it morphed into a party. Apparently the Seattle PD is OK with it too as they didn’t stop it.

    A driver got around the WSP’s barricading and drove on up to the I-5, hitting two BLM protesters, killing one and seriously injuring another. The driver is black and the dead protester is white. Suddenly the WSP has changed its policy, will not block public Federally-funded roads for private protests and will arrest anyone on foot on the interstate. Wonder what would have happened had the protester’s and driver’s races had been reversed?
