With a 100% chance of heavy rain and thunderstorms predicted for the Fourth of July, it’s no surprise that many of the fireworks extravaganzas planned to celebrate Independence Day have been postponed.

Good idea.

Here are some of the official postponement notices.

If we don’t list the celebration you’re wondering about, we apologize.  If it makes you feel better, go anyway and stand out in the rain shouting, “Oooo! Ahhhh! Wow!!!” but watch out for lightning.
