Stardate 60805.94 - No More Nakedness

I haven't posted about the construction pit across the street recently, but it has become more and more annoying (see some original posts here and here and here). They first promised that Saturday work would only be required if there was a safety issue in leaving something "undone" from Friday. Apparently Saturday work was also alright if there was a lot of rain during the month, because they have now worked every Saturday for at least 2 months - with no end in sight. The construction is loud, obnoxious, and terribly annoying.

But it just got worse.

We woke up this morning to a racket outside and discovered that they were constructing a crane in the construction site. By this afternoon they had the "cab" of the crane in place, and guess where it is! Directly in front of our apartment! This is the view we will get to see for the next several months, if not for the next year.

So no more skipping around naked for us! Especially since they start construction every morning at 7 AM!

All this and our rent went up for the next year, too! It just might be time to start looking to buy somewhere...

This coming from the person who was advocating t-shirts and a diaper on kids? :-)

Curt, the place next to us is still for sale, and just recently was reduced a fair amount also.
