Dig It!

The season of utilities repair has hit close to home this year.

All week long, from 7 AM to 7PM, the sound of excavators, graders and rollers (with their incessant back-up beepers) has disturbed my summer idylls. These yellow behemoths are somewhat unsettling—I don't think I’ll ever get entirely over the surprise of seeing one of these giant claws just outside of my window. Fortunately, today I’m out of town at an in-laws lake home, where the only sounds will be the calls of the loons and the revs of jet-skis.

As you know, we are in the second summer of construction up here, but you are just trading noises. Nothing like the call of a loon covered up by the roar of a jet ski.
