ummm........that might be a stretch. You would have to have fireworks being ignited within 100 ft of your house to be able to land on your screen. They would also have to land just right so they would melt the screen......longshot. But then again if it happens, the hole would be the diameter of a cigarette maybe? Now in most enclosures there are punctures that go unfixed from plants, animals (dog/cat paws) and general scuffs/tears from activities near the enclosures (lawn people, pool guy, etc). So a few small diameter holes in the roof of an enclosure seems to be A. a longshot and B. very slight in the big picture when it comes to screen enclosure flaws on top of the fact the sun rots the screen material after about 10 years anyway.

I wish it was just four hours. The losers in my neighborhood were hard at it at 4 in the afternoon and didn't stop until way after midnight. Idiot rednecks probably blew this months rent money on fireworks and cheap beer.

I rather enjoyed the ones our neighbors shot off last night. They were a lot like the ones over the castle at Magic Kingdom.

Dam, talk about a complainypants forum! - "I had to sedate my dogs ...." "I hate fireworks, burned a hole in my screen ...." " I had to do this and I had to do that, fireworks are illegal ..." If you have to get on a forum and complain about something that is so minute then you live a pretty boring life. Whats next, people who pay with a check in the grocery line? Come on and stop the whining, we all deal with things that make us uncomfortable at times. If it happens once, twice or five evenings throughout the year then deal with it as you also do things that annoy others too (like whining on forums, driving 65 in a 70, taking 10 minutes at a Redbox terminal). If I was that miserable about some fireworks then I would have to take a look at myself and analyze why am I so easily annoyed and miserable.

SOME fireworks is one thing. Eight hours of half-wits with mortars is a little too much. Probably even for you.

I said this last year also... Not all fireworks are illegal in Florida. Only the airborn ones like bottle rockets, mortars, and roman candals. Sparklers, fountains, and a whole lot of other fireworks are completely legal and available places like Publix and Walmart.

I used to love fireworks until I realized what they do to our wildlife. Not only do they scare animals, but they kill thousands of birds.

Remember when over 5,000 birds dropped from the sky in Arkansas and the media was saying it was an unexplained phenomenon? Then the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission reported that someone was setting off commercial grade fireworks in a residential district where red-winged blackbirds were nesting.

Regarding shooting guns into the air, people get hit by stray bullets every year during holidays like the Fourth of July. I guess we are raised to get excited over things that go "boom." I've got to admit that I used to really enjoy going to the Esplanade to watch the Boston Pops and the fireworks display.

People need to get a grip. Or move. I prefer you do the latter?

I'm happy for you. It must be so nice to have such a pretentious, overblown feeling of self-importance.
