Fireworks for the Fourth in Pittsburgh

Hi yinz,

Happy fifth of July! After getting home late from the Regatta, I didn’t have the energy to post photos of the fireworks. My fourth of July holiday was certainly happy with a cook out, shopping and the Regatta, but having a one-day holiday on Wednesday is rough. After a day of work and watching the Buccos sweep the Astros tonight (Zoltan!), this photo is pretty much all I can muster.

Pittsburgh is a fantastic place to watch fireworks because the three rivers converge at the point. I remember pre-recession fireworks being shot from three barges on the river. However, the fireworks were still great this year. I saw some fireworks that I don’t think I’ve seen before – ones that shot red and green streaks that scattered like marbles dropped on a hardwood floor. Though this photo is a little blurry, it’s worth sharing because this is what I imagine an alien attack would look like… A little too much like Independence Day, am I right?

I hope you had a happy fourth of July.
