Mind the fireworks

If you don't care for fireworks, here's a reminder that at-home fireworks are now legal in Pennsylvania, so don't be surprised if you, or the kids (or the dog) wake up to booms next door around midnight. We can't guarantee a silent night in South Jersey or Delaware, but any rockets' red glare should be the professional variety.

Happy 2019, everyone!
