They light up the night, and they are as American as apple pie and a Sousa march. "Booms" and "Pows" truly have been a part of Americana since Francis Scott Key wrote of the rockets red glare and bomb bursting in air during the War of 1812.

Living in the Southeastern Region of Wyoming, we understand this as a fact of life, water is precious. Our environment is a high plains desert where arid conditions are the norm most days.
