The challenge over at 2 Things this week is Dry/Boom. In late June every year, the town of Columbiana holds a Liberty Day Celebration. It includes a parade, a concert in the high school stadium, and a fireworks show. Last year the weather was dry, so we ventured to the stadium and heard many booms.
