Flash! Bang! Boom! This is no Thunder

Last night while driving home I saw the dreaded sign “Tunnel Ville-Marie Ferme”…. This made me wonder, why do they close that highway so often? I cruised down Rene-Levesque and noticed many police and fire vehicles. All of this seemed out of place, by the time I got home it was clear to me that something was up. I had a d’oh! moment when the sky erupted into balls of fire and sound. What a great experience!! It turns out that my condo is nestled nicely in a position where I can see the entire fireworks show framed by the CBC on one side and an unnamed building on the other. I sure hope that they don’t go and build a new condo project in front of mine!
I understand now why they close the Cartier bridge but why do they close the tunnel?? Safety? Simplicity? Or is it just to make it harder to get home?! I guess it won’t matter because I’ll be firmly planted on my patio for the next rounds. The fireworks run each Wednesday and Saturday until the end of July.
