The Allegro Condos being built next to my building advertise on their site that you “never miss a beat”. That certainly seems to be the case this morning as they are driving steel beams into the ground like clockwork, shaking my entire building (I’m on the fifth floor of a brick building) and echoing off of the rest of the Tivoli Theater area buildings. The slamming has a period of about a second and is rather similar to what I imagine someone with cinder blocks for shoes jumping in my kitchen would sound like.

I only wish my laptop microphone could pick up the sound, but alas, it doesn’t register. Unfortunately, it is enough to wake me at 6am. And this from a guy who sleeps through fire alarms above the bed and once slept through an explosion from a half-stick of dynamite.
