Here's hoping you all have a safe and happy Fourth of July. Tom will be marching in the famous Witwen parade along with the Flag Ladies. We are expecting a temperature of about 100 (37.8 C), so I hope the ladies don't collapse in their patriotic gear.
We are still in our drought -- although cruel weather forecasters keep mentioning the possibility of rain -- and fireworks have been cancelled all over the place. The state DNR has even said no open flames outside, so no grilling. I suspect that will be largely ignored, and individuals will probably be shooting off fireworks on their own. We can only hope no fires get going.
