We finally settled in to sleep around 2:00am the night of New Year's, but were shaken from our slumber some time before 8:00 by a deafening and now familiar roar. A little sleuthing by my husband uncovered the culprits. Our neighborhood cleaning crew was out bright and early removing any remnants of the previous night's festivity. But in order to be sure all was safe, they were detonating any unused fireworks.
We live in an awesome neighborhood!
