BALTIMORE (AP) - Firework display technicians are preparing for a rainy Fourth of July in Baltimore.

The Baltimore Sun reports (http://bsun.md/29hZAj4 ) that the fireworks waiting on a pair of barges at Smith’s Shipyard in Curtis Bay have been wrapped in industrial-grade aluminum foil and black plastic tarps.

Workers hope that will protect the fireworks from the rain that meteorologists are predicting for Monday.

Workers have spent days getting ready for Monday’s 20-minute show. They not only have to prepare the fireworks, but they have to get the barges ready too.

City and state officials will decide whether the weather is so bad that the show has to be postponed. If it’s delayed, the fireworks will be shot off Tuesday, starting at 9:30 p.m.
