Default my town canceled the fireworks -sadface-

my town (oceanside, ca) and many many more around it have canceled their fireworks for tonight because of "low budget"

this is 100% complete bullcrap when they blame it on low budget, they blow their money all year watering the grass along the interstate that runs through the city...and blow it on alot of other stupid crap.

san diego city itself was the closest fireworks display that i have as an option.
not gonna make that drive.

what a bummer.

That sucks Our town had ours last night despite some less than favorable weather. I didn't go to them cause I wasn't feeling up to go but they are always nice.

well, seeing as how california is issuing IOU's to cover all its debts and/or payments to its tax payers...is it really surprising that they dont have the money? most fireworks stands dont take IOUs as a form of payment.
