Record-breaking droughts all over Texas created hazardous fire conditions, but the VFW supported community safety by canceling the fireworks that often closed the event. Reports are that no one missed them (other than the fireworks sales folks?) and there's talk in the community about possibilities of permanent cancellation of fire hazards, maybe even a laser show replacement.

The triple-digit heat and dry air seemed to affect most of the animals and the cowpersons, but the kids hung right in there.
