Fourth of July! errr, the Third of July!

Setup went as planned on Monday...

....but thanks to Hurricane Arthur, the fireworks and Boston Pops concert were moved to Thursday night, July 3rd.

I was a total grump about the whole thing...currently my long experiment days are Wednesdays and Thursdays, and I was in lab until 7:30 pm, and I had to be back in lab the next morning for analysis that had to get to my advisor by Friday afternoon - so I couldn't really enjoy the party as much as I would have been able to if it had been on a Friday.  But!  It was a wonderful show, and ended just as front came in - the sky opened up and boy, did it ever pour. 

The sound, the feel, the colors...there's just something about a live fireworks show.
