4th of July Iowa Fireworks

The state of Iowa is flat, for the most part, especially the north-central section. Jess and I drove home from Iowa on the evening of the 4th of July, and got to enjoy a cavalcade of fireworks shows put on by small towns along Interstate 35. It was a clear, still night, and I could see the "bombs bursting in air" from up to ten miles away. We saw fireworks in Ames, Story City, Clear Lake, Lake Mills, and Albert Lea. It made the distances seem lesser. Albert Lea (of southern Minnesota) found us viewing fireworks across a lake that is bisected by I-35.

When we got into the Twin Cities, a smoke hung in the still night air (around 11:30 p.m.). "It's fireworks smoke," I said.

"No, it's fog," Jess said. I read in the paper today that it was fireworks smoke, which was thick enough to be a health risk. While I don't shoot off fireworks myself, it certainly made for a more interesting trek home.
