Default Sport ball and fireworks

So the Toronto Raptors won in the NBA finals last night to go up 3-1. That's great and all, but I did not appreciate the people in my building setting off fireworks for us to walk under as I was bringing the dogs back from their bedtime constitutional. I did not appreciate that at all.

If I may use foul language, WTAF. WTF.

That is dangerous and thoughtless. I was worried something would land on us. Luckily Neb is not scared of fireworks and Xerxes doesn't like them but he stayed calm and I hustled them into the building. Toby said I should've seen what unit it was but honestly I was trying to get them in without being hurt.

I hear 'ya...thankfully its illegal to shoot off fireworks where I live due to high fire danger. Its bad enough the horror we recently went through with the horrible fire and needing to evacuate...the Police would have been called in seconds. Its going to be bad fire danger this summer since so much grew after the heavy rain. We get high winds late summer so it makes the situation really bad.

They were setting them off from their balcony! That's got to be dangerous!

The electrical companies in California are going to turn off electricity during periods of high fire danger. People are going to hate this since it will affect large areas...not going to be too great when its hot this summer without a/c.

That will be tough, no AC, food in fridges - but yeah, fires are worse. And I guess the electrical companies caused one of the big fires last year so it kind of makes sense? Scary stuff though.

Better no electricity than no home I guess. Still a hot summer for people who can't tolerate the heat

We got a new AC yesterday, that should cool our whole place and not run constantly. We haven't needed to use it yet, it's been 25C before humidity (I think that's 77F) so pleasant but not too hot in our apartment.

The new unit says it cools 700sqft, our place is larger (just under 900sqft), but we read reviews of people saying it cooled their 1300sqft condo so I think we'll be good.

And Toby installed a rainfall shower head yesterday, I am VERY excited about that!

Both of mine are terrified of fireworks, there was one year they went on until 2 am. We never had a problem until NY legalized fireworks and around this time of year they sell them everywhere, even in the grocery store. Always dread the 4th of July and the days around it.
