    109 today and a cooling trend for the 4th with temps in the 90s. Water temps are mid 60s so my body can handle so much shock so I will probably be a land lubber. Our rain is done until September so there is no hurry to get out.

    Hittin the lake. I don't care if its crowded. Get there early and ride then anchor up and chill and swim and enjoy the lake. Since there is an 80% chance of rain I may need to find another option. I just bought a 30 dollar remote control wakeboat from target I want to try out Thursday too so I hope the rain holds.

    Kind of a scary night here. Had a big family get together, bbq'd up a storm for the block party. All was going well.

    About 45 min into the fireworks show the crazies put on, a mortar tipped over and shot right into our crowd. Luckily(?) my 72 yr old dad was on the receiving end of it instead of one of the young kids. It made a few random bounces, hit a fence behind him and then exploded right under his chair. We actually saw it coming but it was so fast there was hardly time to react. He started to jump up, but instead planted his butt and raised his legs as high as he could.

    I was about 4 ft away and spinning around towards him when the main blast went off. I had my arms over my face so I didn't get burned but he took it pretty bad on his left leg. Knocked him over. I kind of flopped down on top of him and pushed him away from the embers. His leg was more bruised than burned I think but he was bleeding pretty good from 2 wound about the size of a half dollar and a bunch of speckles all over like shrapnel hit him. Our ears were ringing so bad we couldn't hear anything people were saying and eyes were burning pretty bad.

    I think it was more shock than pain but man talk about scary. Again luckily none of the rest of the family or kids nearby were hurt but that was definitely the end of our night.
    Old enough to know better, young enough to do it anyway.

    Sorry to hear about that berg, hope your dad is ok! And I hope you had those nut jobs arrested that shot the fireworks. Scary moment indeed.

    Wow! To a degree, you all were lucky. I've had a mortar tube explode on me but I was far enough back. I always secure the mortar tubes to a large board or fixed object like the sea wall to avoid it getting tipped over.

    Glad everyone is relatively OK.
