Happy 4th of July!
Today is one of my favorite days of the year!
I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful 4th of July!

It is going to be a beautiful day out there, High of 90 degrees. There is a slight chance of storms between 3pm and 6 pm. But that should not effect the fireworks displays.
I plan on attending the Downtown or Shorewood Park fire works. I have yet to make up my mind. Both are good. So if you see me, feel free to stop and say hi! 🙂
If you fly your quad-copter (AKA: Drones) I would love to see those videos!
Note: Just be sure to call the RFD tower to request flight clearance if you are within 5 miles of the airport. They do grant clearance all the time to quad-copter pilots.
The RFD tower number is: 815-484-5312
Remember, if you are lighting off fireworks, the police plan on cracking down on that again this year. So do so at your own discretion.
I hate to be the Debbie Downer and tell you that, because I love fireworks. But the law is the law.
I hope everyone has a safe and wonderful 4th of July! ~ Rickie Traeger
