I just realized how messed up July 4th is going to be this year. You know we think about things

Rickie Traeger: Holy Cow July 4th Events Are Canceled Because Of A Virus…




 

So here it is Friday morning on July 3rd 2020 at 3:36 am as I write this.

You are probably asking yourself, what is going on in my head at 3:36am.   If not, then you probably are now, LOL.   But back on topic.  I am sitting here and as crazy as it sounds, I just realized how messed up July 4th is going to be this year. You know we think about things, and we don’t really “think” about them until that one time, then it hits us.  And that is what happened. We all have been told that July 4th events have been canceled due to Covid-19. So we were all aware of it, but I guess it kinda went in one ear and out the other.  Until just a few minutes ago…

I just realized my favorite holiday of the year, July 4th is canceled. As is holy cow, there will be nothing going on this year.  Here it is July 3rd and normally every year I am planning and thinking about the parade and laying out on the lawn at Davis Park looking up at the fireworks. Kinda planning out the days events.  But as I sit here this year, instead of planning tomm. events I am just realizing how this years July 4th is going to be like.  We all know that weather plays a role in the events. This year is different. A virus called Covid-19 ruined the plans this year. Who would of ever dreamed a virus would be cancelling July 4th???  My whole lifetime that has never happened…  But yet here we all sit on July 3rd at 3:44 am now 2020, and knowing tomm. July 4th events will not happen.  Crazy…

July 4th is always about celebrating our Freedom. Spending time with our loved ones. Eating good food. Listening to our favorite songs on the radio. Laying out in the sun. Did I mention eating good food, lol. And going downtown to watch the parade. Then going over to Davis Park to listen to the music and laying out on the Davis Park lawn with hundreds of others as we watch the fireworks display. Then the long dreaded traffic jam as we head home.    Now that is July 4th!

What are we going to do this year???
