They Do It Right After They Roll Up The Sidewalks

We spent this past weekend in Niagara Falls, NY. Francine and Alexander came along with me while I was attending EerieCon 11, a science-fiction, fantasy and horror convention.

On the drive across the border from Canada to the U.S., we took the Rainbow Bridge -- this is the bridge across the gorge that is closest to the falls and offers a spectacular view of the Horseshoe Falls. We told Alexander to look out the window on his right so he could see the falls, remembering how when he was just a little over one year old and we were driving by the falls, he piped up from the back-seat saying he needed his swimsuit.
A couple of days later, on our drive back into Canada, we instructed him to look out the window at the falls again. This time, the falls were on the left, but he was looking out the window on his right-hand side, and could see a steep brick/rock facing.

He exclaimed: "They turned off the falls!"
