We’re driving back from a family reunion. That was in St. Louis, MO. [Jen’s fam/the Lopp family.]
On the south side of Chicago on I-80 there were fireworks on either side of us for almost the whole stretch. The cresendo was for about 10 minutes and literally they were blowing up every 2 or 3 seconds in all directions. Some within 100 yards of the highway. Here are a few atempts from my phone to capture the moment. Happy Birthday AMERica!
