No hurricanes here like the East Coast experienced today.
Our day began sunny but by the time our neighborhood parade started (10:00 AM) the clouds were already moving in.
That's okay. It made for a cooler parade & a rain shower is always welcome as long as it clears in time for fireworks!!
My dog is not a fan of this holiday. He and loud noises don't cohabitate well.
He loved it last year when our state was experiencing extreme drought conditions & wildfires which cancelled many firework shows.
No such luck for him this year, thankfully. We've had an abundance of moisture so there are shows & celebrations aplenty.

and now, it's time for these girlies to catch one.
Let freedom ring....
