For us in Northern CA. It will be hot. Unfortunately there are idiots already setting off very load fireworks. They drive down the street, throwing something that sizzles, then explodes so loudly, it shakes the window for at least a block. We live just a few blocks from where our city has a fireworks🎆🎆🎇🎇 display. There is a large parking lot across the street and people start parking their cars there by 3-4PM. No problem with me that they can see the fireworks from there, They have kids running around with sparklers in the connecting field that is very dry grass and I worry about fires. Then there is the trash that is left when they all leave about 10:00 PM.. I generally hide out in the bedroom watching Fireworks from other big cities on tv; Big kitty cuddles with me or goes into the closet on a little bed I make for him. This year, because we found out that July 4th is is birthday, maybe he'll get a little can of tuna! Weather man just said that tomorrow will be 102 and Saturday will be 104-107♨️♨️..More hiding out inside to stay cool.🆒

Well, I could have already predicted hot, cause thats here already. According to the forcast, may not see any fireworks, may be hunkered down in the storm shelter!!!

That would be scary for me, but I understand. I spent some time in Iowa and had 2 tornadoes pass by very close to where we were in Davenport, IA. First Time, we were in ground level motel, and I spent some time in the tub. The next time, we were in our apartment on the 9th floor of a hotel.. we had to hunker down when visiting family in SC and a smaller hurricane came through. Those things scare this California girl. I'd rather have an earthquake any day.

As long as we have no fires in our fire-prone area, I’m happy!

They have already put a ban on fireworks outside city limits and all blm and forest in Idaho. Don’t want to lose our great outdoors, hunting,fishing, camping, etc. I think it needs to all be controlled fireworks in designated areas not just anywhere 🙏👍🐾 Ken

Supposed to be hot here in MI. Today it is 70 and raining, the last couple of days have been pretty nice in the low 70s which is my fav weather. Not looking forward to the hot weather or the fireworks because my dog Caddie gets so scared of them. I do have a calming collar for her and put lavender essential oil on the tips of her ears which helps her stay calm but the big booms are what really get her.
