We can expect some morning showers and possible thunderstorms.
Tomorrow is Independence Day and Burlington has a parade set to begin at 10:30 a.m. with fun events to follow on the Town Commons. So how is Mother Nature going to behave tomorrow? What kind of weather can we expect? According to the National Weather Service we can expect a chance of showers and thunderstorms in the morning, mainly after 7 a.m. However, the chance of precipitation is only about 40 percent and new rainfall amounts are expected, at most, to be less than a tenth of an inch.

Tomorrow night we can expect a 30-percent chance of showers and thunderstorms, mainly before 11 p.m. Otherwise…

These easy to make red, white and blue treats are great for little chefs to help with.
"If our country is worth dying for in time of war let us resolve that it is truly worth living for in time of peace." ~Hamilton Fish My boy is always asking to help me in the kitchen. Since it is typically a mad scramble to get dinner on the table after work and activities, our cooking together time is reserved for the weekends. I was looking for something to make to bring to a party on the Fourth of July and stumbled upon a really fun photo and recipe on www.lilluna.com. I knew it would be the perfect treat for us to make together. Kids (and lots of us older folks) love Rice Krispie Treats and by just adding a little food coloring you can tailor them to suit most any holiday. Since Independence Day is just around the corner, this red, …

Beyond fireworks and charcoal grills
I have found that when asking the question, “What are your plans for the Fourth?” many people have an answer that includes the words “Every year we…”. Much like our fine country, people seem to celebrate through traditions that are diverse and varied. Some are classic like cookouts and fireworks and the Boston Pops at the Hatsch Shell, while others are more original like camping or vacations abroad. Growing up, our whole family would rent a house on the beach during the week of the fourth. It was nothing fancy, your typical weathered cottage, with sand perpetually peppered on the tile floors and kids piled in bunk beds. On Independence Day there would be a big barbecue and at night massive bonfires lined the beach and fireworks lit up …
