Considering we live in the countryside it has been very noisy around here lately. For the past week or so there has been a constant beeping outside the kitchen window as concrete mixers come and go. There is some work being done on an agricultural dam just up the road from us but as the roads are so narrow the big concrete mixers can't get to the construction site without falling into the river. The car park behind our house has been transformed into a concrete loading zone where the big concrete mixers back up onto a ramp and transfer concrete into the smaller concrete mixers.
Unfortunately, while they are waiting for the small mixers to come back, the big mixers continually beep... and I mean continually. Fortunately the last of the concrete was poured yesterday and we are now back to our normal boring, but quiet view out the kitchen window!
