daisy_knotwise and I headed off for the Des Plaines fireworks display over at Oakton Community College and got there about 5:30. Just as we finished setting up the shower curtain base and blanket topping, it started to rain. It never rained hard enough that we wanted to go take shelter, but it rained consistently for over an hour. This kept many people away.

I finally decided to go home and get the umbrellas that we'd forgotten, confident that this would either keep us drier or make the rain stop. Sure enough, about ten minutes after I got back with the umbrellas, it stopped raining for good.

It was a very nice display when it finally went off (after the rest of Des Plaines showed up) and included some effects I hadn't seen before. A woman sitting near us had been to the Niles display the night before and reported that this display blew Niles away.


I'm going to go take a hot shower and clean up now. :)

  • Reporting In

    Gretchen and I went to the doctor for a fasting blood draw this morning. We'll see how the results are. This afternoon, Gretchen went *back* in that…

  • Steps

    Today is better than yesterday. Still short on solutions, but maybe I can get some time to sort things out. Thanks, folks.

  • Well, That Escalated Quickly

    Today could have been better. Much better.
