I had mentioned yesterday that it was Canada Day (equivalent of July 4th). Leah and I decided to go out and watch the fireworks and do some of the rides on the midway. Since neither of us drive, we took a taxi out there about 6 last night.
Fireworks were to start around 9:30, but it started pouring at 9. We both figured it wasn't worth hanging around in a downpour, so we tried to call a taxi to get home...all of the streets within a mile had been blocked off and the cabs and busses weren't running.
We made it up to a McDonald's for something to eat (about a 1/4 mile walk in the rain. We looked at each other and said out loud, "Heck with it, let's get a room". The young teenagers around us looked totally horrified. There was a motel about a block from Mickey D's, so that's where we spent the night.
