OT: Burn Bans & Fireworks: Can you? Should you?
At the time I'm typing this, 34 counties in Oklahoma have enacted burn bans because of the dangerously dry conditions which have elevated fire danger.
A day or two back I linked the OFS Burn Ban map. This morning, I noticed the OFS had come back and posted a "fireworks" chart to try to clarify if you can, cannot or "might could" (to borrow a phrase from Jeff Foxworthy)use fireworks in counties with a burn ban.
I'm linking the updated burn ban map/fireworks listing in case any of you are wondering if your family can use fireworks in your area if you have a burn ban. In some cases, the chart from the OFS may refer you back to your specific county's burn ban resolution because your commissioners may have decided to allow the use of fireworks with specific restrictions that require a more detailed explanation than OFS can squeeze into the allowed space on their chart.
I hope this info is helpful if any of you are trying to figure out what to do about the Great Fireworks Dilemma of 2011.
