|It's a small city without a lotta people and with a lotta tax money to spend on really cool fireworks (speaking of tax money, did you see that new fire station they are about to finish on SH 3 south of NASA 1?? Wow!! It looks like Frank Lloyd Wright himself had a hand in it!)|
And Webster is conveniently right up the road from those of us who live in Centerpointe.

|(1) From the Bed Bath and Beyond parking lot, which is west of the municipal park that they commandeer for the event. This location has a particular advantage in being easy-in, easy-out from the freeway. The police will block Blossom Street (now on some maps as Plumley Drive) to prevent people from getting too close to the pyrotechnics. This view from a few years ago is looking roughly north on Blossom from the barricades.|
