Lucky, here, not too many leaf blowers in the vicinity.

However, there's someone who likes to play the accordion around here. I was out in the backyard, enjoying a coffee a few weeks back, when La Vie en Rose came wafting over the back fence. Felt like I was in Paris. I'm all for a little neighbourhood noise- just not the gas-powered kind.

As the parent of a hearing-impaired child, I can attest to how much a background drone can interfere with her ability to distinguish normal speech, other things that she might want to hear, like birdsong-- and other things she might need to hear, like sirens.
