There was a small bang that happened near the park around that time. Sounded like a firework.

Whew. Glad to hear no squirrels were hurt or made homeless.

There are red flag warnings today. Also it’s warmer in Fairbanks AK then Concord.

Expect a press release from DeSaulnier.

>> Also it’s warmer in Fairbanks AK then Concord.

Weather Channel says Fairbanks high today = 39, Concord = 71.

Couldn’t be the punks hanging out there every evening drinking and carrying on. We walk thru Markham about 3 evenings a week and see this group there partying. Last night the brats were doing donuts in the parking lot.

It’s 30 in Fairbanks right now. It’s 72 in Concord. Better buckle down on your online meteorology courses.

@ACC – I’m sure you’re right. We used to live near there and it’s pretty much an open air drug bazaar full of low-lifes now. The City didn’t seem to care too much when reported. I feel sorry for the great people that take care of the gardens there, but I’m so glad we moved out of Concord.
