After careful thought, and despite the HOT we're experiencing, Liz and I are heading out to the boat in a several hours and will be out on Fox Lake for the fireworks. This will be the first time out for us to see them from a boat in many years.
The problem is not the hundreds of boats that will be out on the lake (the Chain of Lakes has been called the second busiest pleasure boat area in the U.S. after the Intercoastal Waterway. It isn't even the boat cops. It's the other cops on land being every so watchful for drinkers. And, of course, those really frightening roadblocks which so remind me of movies about Nazi Germany.
This means it will be a dry watch for me.
