Chilly Fourth of July

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

When I was a boy, we lived in Chicago. Since it was il­le­gal to shoot off any fire­works (and I do mean any) in­side the city lim­its, we usu­ally went to a nearby park to watch an of­fi­cial fire­works dis­play on the Fourth.

When I was 7, the low tem­per­a­ture the night of the Fourth of July was 40 de­grees. Our mother made me and my two younger sis­ters put on our heavy win­ter coats be­fore we could leave the house to go and watch the fire­works at the park. LAU­RENCE GRAY North Lit­tle Rock
