The swooshing noise as a rocket sets off is a warning of a loud bang to come. Last night, we were sat watching television and didn’t hear the swoosh. We did hear the bang though and felt it as well. It sounded like war had just broken out.
The fireworks were obviously close, real close. When Pam went out to investigate, she saw someone setting them off on the land at the top of our road. The fireworks were exploding directly over our house as evidenced this morning by the rocket sticks Pam found in the garden.
A plea:- If you are going to set off fireworks, can you please go a little further away. Our ageing hearts do not appreciate the shock of loud unexpected noises.
