It's been surprisingly quieter than normal so far this summer. Usually we have a lot of fireworks going off in our neighborhood by now, but it really hasn't been an issue this year.

Surprisingly, I have not heard any yet.

They are illegal here except for the one week of the 4th of July.  They do not go on sale until June 27th.  We will probably start hearing some next weekend.

So far the neighborhood has been quiet. The police around here are finally enforcing the ban on homeowners using fireworks in the residential area of our town.  The houses in my neighborhood are very close together here and some of my neighbors have complained about stray rockets (fireworks) landing on the roofs of their houses and garages.  This is a potential fire hazard and is one of the many reasons why the sale of fireworks to the public is illegal in NY State ( if we want them we have to drive to Pa to get them, as it is illegal to order them through the mail).  It also helps that the kids that were guilty of setting off the firecrackers around here the past few summers, have graduated from highschool, and moved away.

 We haven't heard any yet, but I know it' coming. It doesn't get too bad around our neighborhood, but there are a few houses outside of our sibdivision that sometimes have them going off a bit late right around the 4th.

They don't sell fireworks till July 1st here, plus I'm not even sure if we are allowed to set them off in our neighborhood. I miss setting off our own, but it was ruined by to many idiots setting off illegal ones. So now we watch the professional ones at the University stadium.
