That changing corner lot in Sandy UT
The NW corner of 9000 S and State Street in Sandy UT sometimes sits vacant with its surrounding wire fence. Then it can become a hive of seasonal activity.
It can be a pumpkin patch at the end of October for Halloween, a tract of "live" Christmas trees during our snows of November and December, complete with resident reindeer, even the tented base of life-size and greater wild animal statuary of a moving display and sale.
The location is a very busy place for passing traffic, and stationary traffic awaiting its appropriate light.
The current occupant is the large yellow and black marquee tent of Black Cat fireworks advertising "Best deals inside". Dozens of US flags adorn the tent with their own sound and activity in the summer breezes of Sandy UT.
This tent like others across the city provides a lot of the local firepower for Independence Day celebrations. Local ordinances specify launch dates, resident animals seem to anticipate its approach.
Pioneer Day, 24th July, a big Utah holiday and celebration allows firework activity also, so the business of fireworks sales will be our local land mark for more weeks yet.
Then the lot will be vacated and tidied, and have its chain link fence restored.
