For the last three weeks, someone or several someones have been setting off fireworks in my neck of the woods in Portland. It's usually late at night after I have already gone to bed. Monday morning, for example, I was jolted awake by loud pops and bangs at 3:45 a.m. Please keep in mind that I have to get up at 0' dark early and I have insomnia, so the few hours that I do get are critical. I'm okay with these celebrations on the weekends or even earlier in the evening on week days, but not in the wee hours of the morning.

I haven't called the police to report it, because I don't know who or where the fireworks are coming from. I don't remember this being a problem last summer and the 4th of July is still several days; so I think that being quarantined due to COVID-19 has some people doing whatever they can to keep themselves amused. I know that I get cabin fever being locked up for a weekend, let alone three long months.

Are you hearing fireworks every night where you live? How are you dealing with it? Have you called the police, or are you ignoring it the best you can? Let us know on our Facebook page.
