ALBANY, NY (NEWS10) – Today’s TRY 98.3 social dilemma came from Olivia. She’s a little upset about something going on in her neighborhood and wondering if this is happening to anyone else? Here is his email:
Hi Jaime. I’m dealing with a dilemma that I hope you’ll talk about on the radio. For about a month, every night, fireworks have been set off in our neighborhood. I know you can buy some kinds of fireworks in stores these days, but these sound a lot louder than the pretty fireworks you usually see. Obviously I was expecting this on the 4th of July, but it has been happening since mid-June and continues EVERY DAY. I’m curious, does anyone else hear this stuff in their neighborhood? I wouldn’t mind that much, but it scares my dog so much that he cowers under the bed and won’t come out for hours. I’m just curious if anyone else is facing this issue, and if it’s just okay to set off fireworks whenever you want now? I hope you will talk about it. Thank you Jaime, I love listening every morning.

Well, I’ve definitely heard it in or around my neighborhood too. I have to be honest, it doesn’t really bother me, but I understand it bothers some animals and some people as well. Also, it can keep you awake if done later. So I don’t think Olivia is the only one dealing with this stuff.
What do you think? Have you heard fireworks in your neighborhood lately? And is it just okay to trigger them whenever you want now? let me know what you think on TRY’s Facebook page.
