This is a topic makes me get quite stirred up. For example, the power operated gardener – e.g. snow blower or leaf blower. There has been a very noisy leaf blower operating right outside our apartment for a LONG time this morning. It’s really doing a neat job of tidying up the grounds but oh how I wish I had a mute button for it.
And firecrackers – that’s another loud starling noisemaker. Just ask my dog or cat. I don’t have either a dog or cat now but I suffer for all dogs and cats out there in the big wide world when there are fireworks.
