I got an easy time on this one. The flooding in the area made them postpone the fireworks until July 14, so there weren't any to see. Now, come July 14 I am sure I'll be condition white from time to time, but I will probably be in my backyard watching them- so it isn't that big of a deal.

Went and kept looking over my shoulder. Had open field but a few people filtered in behind me so I kept glancing back as they were wanting to have their own party.

Condition white: Not attentive to your surroundings at all (from a threat perspective), lost in thought.

Notice the shift in threat from being possibly general or to someone else to yourself in the transition from orange to red. This is why cops call it 'escalation' when they intercept something, e.g. "Freeze! Police!". At that second, they go from orange to red and the threat becomes personal. Something to think about. Escalation is not recommended for lay-folk. Stop the threat, then speak.

Does it count in white if you were sleeping in bed?

conservaDude, you left out black or has black sort of slid by the wayside?
Is there a website that explains this in detail, have never seen it on the web other than in a post like this.

I was over at family's house out in the country watching the show. when i got home I heard some cracks that made me perk up quite a bit as it was raining very heavily when I got home so I wasn't expecting any more fireworks. I had to look around for the tell tale colours coming through the windows.

Nope, I was more concerned with being hit by a shell from a knocked over tube...
Happened once before and I stood in the path and took one for the home team...
I'd Rather it hit me than my little guy.. hurt too, I had a permanent bruise on my leg by my knee for months afterwards, same side of me that was hit by a truck years ago...
This year I was holding my little girl, and I still managed to get hit by some packing...
I was not the one lighting the fireworks

Not really white (though it probably happened), but yellow. Almost didn't go with the wife & kids, but the rain stopped just long enough to get the local city fireworks in and it was too hard saying no to my three 8 y/o boys after all the rain we've had here in E. Texas the past month or so.
A good time was had by all as we watched from the bed of the truck!

Stayed 'high-yellow' most of the night. I volunteer as a small town weather spotter & we had a magnificent lightning storm moving in from the north. About this time last year we were in the middle of a 1mil. acre grass wildfire caused (they say) by wind blowing down a major power transmission line. Needless to say we are all a little 'goosy'. Rain held off until after the city's display was over.

Watched fireworks on the beach with three grandchildren under the age of 4. Was in 'condition plaid'!!! If you have kids or grandkids, you know what I mean.

I was white but then again I was on the roof of a four story building with my wife and daughter.

But to be honest, I enjoyed my first July 4th off in four years. I was in yellow until we started drinking at about 2330; after that....
