Several years ago, I spent a week losing sleep every night to what I thought was a neighbor listening to loud bass music for hours on end.
After several nights of this, I became so fed up and annoyed, that in the middle of the night I slipped on some shoes and walked outside. I went down
the road with every intention of pounding on my neighbor's door, only once I got halfway there I realized that the sound was coming from much further
There had been a large construction project on the highway near my house that had wrapped up (nearly) the week before. It turns out that the
construction company, in an effort to reduce the need to stop traffic, was finishing the last bit of construction overnight for a week. The noise I
was hearing was a heavy piece of machinery made to force a series of indentations into the edge of the road, the kind that "rumble" when you drive
over them. (I live on a very crooked highway).
Since then, I've noticed that overnight construction has become more and more common. Although it does help relieve traffic problems, I find it
annoying that loud construction noises are allowed overnight.
Perhaps that is what some of these events are?
