The noise from the fireworks was bad enough, then I get this in my weather app...

Description
...Very Unhealthy Air Quality Sunday Morning...

Stagnant air and light winds have caused thick smoke from Saturday night fireworks to be trapped near the surface, causing unhealthy to very unhealthy air conditions across much of northeast Kansas. Conditions are expected to improve after 8 to 10 AM as increased atmospheric mixing allows for the dispersion of the smoke. Those with respiratory concerns should avoid outdoor exposure until conditions improve later this morning.

Unbelievable.

7. Yes, I can see it in my neighborhood this morning...

At least tonight - if it continues - I can call the cops because it is now illegal again.
