Last night my wife and I were there for the second entrant, South Africa. It was sunny when we got there at 5 PM (people go early to get a good viewing spot) and through 7 PM by which time we had done the NY Times saturday crossword and had our picnic lunch. Then it started to rain and a lightning storm moved in. Below is a pic of Mrs. Marconius and I looking like drowned rats hiding under our blanket.
And here is a video of some of the lighning strikes before the fireworks, one during the fireworks and finale of the fireworks.
In spite of getting as wet as drowned rats, it was a lot of fun. Fireworks and music go well together.
Tin, if you've ever been to one of these, I hope it brings back memories!
