New Woe for a Jittery N.Y.C.: Illegal Fireworks Going Off All Night

The city received 1,737 fireworks complaints in the first half of June, 80 times as many as it got in the same period last year.

If we have any fireworks here, they are smaller ones like sparklers.
Vancouver WA used to shoot off a big show into the Columbia R every year and people would picnic at an old fort or park cars by the river on the Oregon side. Due to the Virus, it has been cancelled.
WA used to sell fireworks but a number if years ago a recent legal immigrant minor (had interpreter at trial)set off fireworks while hiking and a huge forest fire destroyed a lot of land and almost a lodge by a waterfall. Vegetation just beginning to return.

These are illegal fireworks being shot off in areas where they are not allowed.

Legal or not, none should be shot off in forests, especially in the summer.

Yes,,, just last Friday night right next door!  I can't wait for the sheriff down the block to pay them a call.  Gunshots are common here too.  

Now I am worried about needing to heavily mow everything at my place again, as a contingency against wildfire, although we have been getting occasional rain.

Today it's overcast. But with all the other economic crises going on, I sure feel particularly vulnerable to various and sundry situations that can happen, at a time where being able to recover from it might turn out to be impossible.
