Then at 12:30 when it did rain it was perfect to make sure all the fall off from the "illegal" fireworks was out since Pueblo is good about the 4th and does not enforce that lame law.
My neighbor who owns a body shop said the shops down in Pueblo are still repairing cars from the July 2009 storm.

I bet that was a bad, but a fun storm. Don't get me wrong Pueblo gets rain, hail and snow. I can even think of a few nice blizzards, the record being in 1983 when we got 2 feet of snow in 24 hours. That being said on average its usually warmer and with less moisture but can be more humid here then most of the state due to our location south of Pikes Peak in the lowest spot on I-25 between Monument hill and Raton Pass. In fact from downtown you pretty much go uphill in every direction and that is why we have the large levees we do on both the Arkansas river and Fountain River otherwise downtown would flood as it did a lot before they built them after the major flood in 1921. That is, also, why Pueblo was able to get the reservoir built and paid for by the federal government. However, that topic is for another thread.

Happy 4th to you. We've a bottle of Schramsburg chilling in the fridge for later after fireworks at the USAF Academy.
Well, on the other hand, I was looking forward to my last evening of staying at the Drury Inn before moving into the townhouse...I would be able to see the AF Academy from my hotel room window. Then the 8:30 weather report said golf ball sized hail was occurring just 15 miles NE of Colorado Springs...and it did look scary...any I have a new car, which I certainly didn't want damaged by hail. So off to the townhouse I went where I could put my car in the garage...and enjoyed some of the worst thunderstorm cells I have ever experienced from about 9 - 2 a.m.

Ah well...natural fireworks...plus some rather normal (?) hail.

Hail is a regular visitor east of the mountains, usually small stuff but we get the larger stuff often enough. COLO leads the nation in deaths by lightning strikes, but only 3 deaths in the last 50 years for tornados.

The reason we dont go to Boston is because everyone tries to grope the ladies and the people are awful and disgusting. I'd rather sit at home in Dedham and watch our fireworks and all the neighbors fireworks go off and just look down the street as the cop drives down the street just watching them.

the 4th of July was fun and Im glad Pueblo had a good festivity

The best fireworks display in Pueblo didn't take place on the riverwalk, it took place on the east side! I sat in my front yard last night and could see a great fireworks show in every direction. The best part is, I didn't have to pay a dime for it! (well, I did buy an 18-pack of Coors Light )

It was the same way all over town. I think Puebloans light the most "illegal" fireworks of any city in the state but I could be wrong.
