Beep Beep Beep

This morning has been unusually peaceful.  

I probably shouldn't say anything that would disrupt that.  You know, Murphy's Law.

Here's the issue.  There is this construction site in my neighborhood.  It has been the bane of my existence since the spring.  I especially take issue with the reverse safety alarms on the backs of trucks and tractors.  They go "Beep!  Beep! Beep! Beep! Beep!" all day long, every day since the snow melted back in the spring.  

It is a ridiculous amount of torturous noise.  I even called the US OSHA to complain about it.  I honestly don't see why these things need to echo through the entire neighborhood so that you can hear them half a mile away.  It's torture.  It would be like being forced to listen to Baby Shark all day long, every day.

I can't stand it.  

The 2nd issue is the condition of the sidewalk near the entrance.  It is covered with mud and gravel and is caving in in one spot.  It gets worse every time it rains, the mud gets slippery, and one part of the sidewalk caves in even more.  According to the city, they were supposed to correct this problem by the end of the business day yesterday.  Of course, nothing has been done.  

The fence has since fallen into the hole.  

Now when the kids walk to school, they go by this.  One little kid was standing right on the edge playing, while on his way home.  

It's an accident waiting to happen.
