2 of our 4 cats cower when the stuff goes off in the neighborhood. One house has been setting stuff off all week, then yesterday they started around 6:30 pm and kept it up until 1 am. I'm a bit concerned that there was that much ordinance stored either in their garage or house.
Didn't call the cops because they have also been getting calls of "shots fired" around town - they chase them down & find shell casings with no injuries or damage. I'm thinking they've got someone driving around and firing off their gun(s) into the air.
