The bombs bursting in air

Tuesday, July 10, 2018

Pardon my anger … but who (passed the Iowa fireworks law)! I'm sorry if this was you Gov. Branstad, but, last night in my neighborhood … guys were setting off BOMBS of some type and it sounded (and I felt like) it was a war zone and we were getting bombed on — like Iraq or somewhere! I couldn't even hear my TV, and hot ashes were falling on houses and on canvas gazebos, not to mention my dogs were in panic over this, and I thought one of them was going to have a heart attack!

It became VERY irritating after this long of period. If you don't have a neighbor who is doing this, then I guess you need to experience this for one-and-a-half hours at night! THIS SHOULD BE BANNED! I stay home during this holiday for a little peace. If I wanted to hear this noise, then I'd go to the fireworks display! PLEASE, PLEASE reconsider this law! I beg of you … PLEASE!
