The construction starts around 7am. The entire road in front of my house, outside my door and bedroom is gone, literally. The work goes around the corner so there isn’t a view without it. The noise goes all day long. Giant concrete pipes moved and dropped, trucks to and fro. Its loud. The house rattles and shakes all day. My china clatters in the cubbard. And when they stop, its almost silent, at least in comparison. And everything is left in the middle of work. Wheels crooked, forklifts and giant scoops still mid air. Its eerily quiet when they stop, instantly, abruptly. What a cool experience.
