How big explosions begin

This full, wrapped pallet, which stands over seven feet tall and weighs over a thousand pounds, is most--but not all--of the fireworks that we will blow up on the Fourth of July. We're talking more than half a ton of colorful, explosive goodness. Twenty-eight boxes (twenty-four here, four that came loose) crammed full of fireworks. Over 90 devices--not counting the small stuff we'll light to explain fireworks safety to the kids and to warn the crowd that we're starting. With them, the count is right around a hundred.

Oh, hell, yeah: we are serious about our fireworks.

The first step in creating the show occurred a while ago, when we ordered the 'works. Today marked the second milestone, as they arrived and we moved them inside.

I'm already excited about doing the show.

If you live in this area and are interested in attending our giant Fourth party, drop me a line (there's a contact form on my Web site), and we can probably work it out.

It'll be a (literal) blast!

I'm sure such an excess of fireworky goodness places you on some federal watchlist!
