Dear Long Islander,
It’s been a gray and rainy couple days, and unfortunately those clouds look like they’re going to linger. If we’re fortunate we may catch a glimpse of a never-before-seen meteor shower tonight, but even if the weather doesn’t cooperate there will still be plenty of pretty lights in the sky when fireworks are launched at Memorial Day celebrations across the Island. There will be a lot of great parades and ceremonies for the holiday, so make sure you check a couple out and have a happy and safe Memorial Day!
