Yeah. Spending that much on fireworks (how the heck did they spend that much and why?) and then to put them that close togethers mad!

Only some one really rich or some sort of fireworks display would spend that much, and obviously aren't doing it right...

oh right...opps...they might as well have put the money in a fire for what they got!

Timex? That sort of a timer which does fireworks?

Though they were too close and set each other off? You'd thought they wouldnt have been as close together as that though...

Kool responses, at that site.

And yes, it was definitely a mistake. But, except for a handfull of
pyro-pro's in the crowd, none of the over 1000 private guests had a clue
that the display didn't go off exactly as planned.

Interesting side note: this was to be a two-camera shot. One camera--the
one that actually caught the event--was trained on what's called a "cake
show." (Fireworks that come in huge "cakes," and are a sort of show in
themselves--at a lower altitude). They were going off in the background, a
hundred yards farther down the meadow from the "big stuff."

That's why you don't see the sky burst; the second camera was trained on the
sky--but it hadn't even been turned on yet.

You may imagine, the sky burned brighter than daytime for nearly half a
minute. It was nutz.
