Fire . . . works in Waukesha

If you went to the Milwaukee Fireworks display on July 3 you were treated to a great show. However, if you followed my other suggestion and went to the Waukesha fireworks display . . .well, that's a different story. They started exactly at 9:30 pm and were decent -- until the sudden stop. The display was halted a couple times and then shortly before 10 p.m. it ended because of fires from falling embers and sparks that landed on the grounds of Crites Field, according to a police dispatcher.

Ironically, Waukesha listed a rain date for their fireworks. Alas, not this year.
