Well not now, but I was last night. Last night was the 4th of July, and the town next to mine always does some nice fireworks, and that’s where we go. You know, tradition. Usually, I go with my kids, and my friend and her kids, we sit in the same place and have a decent time.
Last night – last night was strange. First it started to rain. Not super heavy at first, but hard enough to warrant moving under a tree. All was well, we got a bit soggy, but it wasn’t bad. Then the lightning came. Tree, bad place to be, so we moved under the overhang of a building until the lightning subsided.
We went back to our regular places on the lawn – a place we sat for YEARS when something quite unexpected happened. Automatic sprinklers popped up out of the ground, one being approximately 3 feet from where we were sitting. Instant soaking.
So of course we grabbed our soggy blankets and ran to a new location. However, what we didn’t realize was the fact that there were automatic sprinklers set up in various zones that had a staggered watering schedule. And guess where our new seats were. Yep, maybe one foot from a new sprinkler head. Talk about not catching a break – but we did catch a lot of water droplets lol.
