Fourth of July Fireworks in San Francisco Marred by Fog, Once Again

You see, it should look more like this, from 2007. This year’s fireworks got above the fog, but only once in a while. It’s almost as if the Bay Area should celebrate Anti-Fourth of July instead.

See you (through the fog) next year!
