Summer ruined
They are finally repaving our street AND putting in new sidewalks. We are overdue for both, but there are two bad aspects to this.

First, every day, nearly all day long, there are dozens of trucks, earth movers and diggers, plus (it appears) the pickup trucks the workers came to work in.One comes home from work not knowing if one will be able to get into the driveway, or will have to park up the street around the corner. That makes planning grocery shopping difficult since I am not prepared to carry heavy bags that distance.

Second, They took out and carried off the nice old granite curbstones that surely date from before 1900 and are replacing them with bland concrete curbs.
