I had been warned to be careful going out to Moxee, WA on the 4th of July. From afar it looks like the entire city is lighting fireworks, for hours. Miles away it looks stunning, peaceful, and just what an evening celebrating the 4th of July should be but when you are in the middle of Moxee during the 4th of July. It kind of feels like a war zone.

The smoke billows from every driveway, fireworks whistle, crackle and sparkle while children all the way up to adults are shrieking. The Roman Candles are passed out and no one adheres to the instructions, please plant candles firmly in the ground, and then light. No, these Roman Candles are being shot at people, cars, trees, the sky. It's a free-for-all,  one of the last places in the area where it's legal to light off as many fireworks as you want. For now.

These changes won't go into effect until 2023 but the time is now to get your vote in.
