The stench of burnt sulfur lingering on….. Bits of wire from spent sparklers in the roadway…. Black scars on street rain gutters marking the locations where “snakes” did their thing. The feeling of loss as empty firework stands start disappearing again until they re-emerge next year.
How I miss all that. Santa Clara County outlawed even Safe & Sane fireworks decades ago. TOO sane. TOO safe. ;-(
