So, in a few days it will be Independence Day, better known as the Fourth of July. With that comes the many firework displays both public and private. Michigan went through a legal overhaul of what was acceptable to "let off" a few years back. This was a big change to what was permitted in the past.
Admittedly, I remember growing up and taking the annual family trip to State Line Fireworks in Indiana to get the "good ones." This was similar to the monthly Indiana beer run. I guess Indiana was the place to get all the fun stuff. I also remember the blow torch (acetylene and oxygen) balloon bombs, and the "dry ice" 2-litre bombs.
