Well, Dad and I withstood the wind, rain, lightning, and thunder. We watched the entire fireworks display. We had met Kim, Scott, Sarah, and Nicholas down by the Veterans Memorial about 7:00pm. First it started raining lightly, then increased in intensity, followed by lightning, thunder. The park started emptying out, many people leaving. We hunkered down under umbrellas and waited. For a few moments, we wondered if they fireworks would be cancelled. The show began at 9:30pm as scheduled. The wind and rain kicked up for awhile but the fireworks continued. At one point fireworks were bursting in the sky as lightning was flashing out over the lake. It was beautiful. The show lasted about an hour. I had a really nice time, and since the crowd had thinned out, had an easy time getting out of the parking lot onto the freeway and home. Happy Fourth of July! Enjoy the holiday.
