Happy New Year!

The window seat in our master bedroom is proving a good vantage point to witness the New Year celebrations. These consist of entire boxes of fireworks being lit in the street while people stand an unsafe distance away and watch. Many of the fireworks are simply noise and serve only to set off the car alarms nearby. Some of them are actually pretty though, and would be enjoyable if I wasn't thinking that maybe we shouldn't all be quite so close.

The only other time we have spent the New Year here was our first year, back when fireworks were banned. Generally we spend this time of year vacationing in a tropical location. Or actually living in a tropical location. So right now this is novel. I'm sure at about 2 a.m. it will have crossed the line into irritating.
