Now keep in mind that we live in a little town of barely 10k, not a big city. Also keep in mind that I sleep without my hearing aids, so it takes a minor earthquake or a baby screaming in my ear to wake me up.
And yet the machinery outside woke me - me! at 7 this morning. For not only was it OMG loud, it was (and is still) shaking the whole house.
I'm tempted to complain to the city. I know these things need to be done, but notify us, for gods' sake!
