Speechless Sunday: Illegal Fireworks in Los Angeles...

Well I will try to keep this to minimal word. Now with that said last night the Fireworks kept going past 3am... Diane woke up around 3:30 am and the fireworks continued. Then look what the news had to say. The picture tells it all... as you can see the photo was taken before 9 pm.

This morning Diane complained about the Air Quality and I casually mentioned to her because it was like being in Combat  Zone seven or eight hours non stop fireworks.... seriously  it was worse than a simulated combat exercise. Later this evening she sent me a link about the Airquality and I would be remiss if I did not share with you.

Los Angeles had the worst Air Quality on the Globe today

 

In case you are not in the mood to read it let me cut and paste  section for your parusal:

 

The spike in poor quality comes the morning after residents throughout the county detonated fireworks well into the night as part of apparent 4th of July celebrations. An amended L.A. County order had prohibited public fireworks displays this weekend, but that ban did little to stop residents from taking matters into their own hands.

Clearly you can immagine what pet owners and the poor wild life outside the homes experienced last night...

Wishing you a safe and healthy life and I look forward to your comments.

Oh my gosh, that is insane! We saw a lot of private fireworks displays at Hilton Head since the COVID shut down the city's annual show but, it was nothing like the normal 30-minutes-and-you're-done shows!

Reading Michael Jacobs' comment, I have to say that we experienced it for several weeks prior to Independence Day here too - totally ridiculous.

Debe Maxwell, CRS  the pre 4th was bad but nothing compared to seven or eight hours worth on the 4th... reminded me of being in a War Zone... I felt horrible for all the Viet Nam Veterans with Post Traumatic Syndromes....Endre

Hi Endre Barath, Jr. - You brought back some bad memories of living in SoCal.  Back then we had shake roofs and my husband would be wetting the roof down constantly because of bottle rockets hitting it.  You shouldn't have to go through this. 

In Sedona, not one sound of any firework at all.  People realize that we could easily get a forest fire.  It is all about personal responsibility.

Hi Endre Barath, Jr., that's inconsiderate, some people have no regard for others. I also woke up around 3 am to large bang and boom sounds and sadly, still going on.

Evelina Tsigelnitskaya  I love Fourth of July and if it is controlled fireworks but this year thanks to the pandemic they canceled them so instead we have been dealing with people that started in May and are still continuing....Endre

Fortunately, it was pretty quiet here in the Napa Valley. Don't know about the city of Napa but haven't heard there was much there.

The main Bay Area a totally different story. I believe a very similar scene as LA. About 40-50 small grass fires were put out and there is one large one still burning. They believe all from illegal fireworks. Like we don't have enough to worry about.

Just small, short breaths............cheers cvc
