I'm all for the workers...

But do they have to start at 6:45am on a Saturday? It looks like they're done now - they replaced the whole roof across the street from me in two or three days. But I would have been glad if they'd let me sleep in just a little more yesterday!

I hear your pain (lack of sleep) Your shot almost gave me vertigo. I can not imagine being up that high...I hope they were tied off. (as you can tell, I don't love heights)

ACK! that early in the morning would drive me batty! We have weed wacker work men who turn on their machines early and its the worst noise ever.

But do they shout 10 times louder than they need to too, like here? I don't know what's worse, them or the tools. Anyway, a new, recurrent theme here for me is getting woken up by the early torrential rain hitting a gutter above my bedroom window and serving no other purpose but to wake me up (the gutter, that is)! Strange, this Saturday, early I was remembering my aprtment in Lisbon and how Friday/Saturday was disturbed by 'men' behaving stupidly, with a lot of drunken shouting on their ways into/out of the "Men's Erotic Club" across the road (probably about as erotic inside as a used box of matches). Then, at 6. 30 a.m., it was the weekly garbage-bin washing contest performed by the poor, contracted mozambican women. Even worse than the boys. Eventually, I gave up & slept in the living room inside on Fridays & Saturdays!

Groan, Oh, I feel your pain. Just when you might have had a leasurely awakening at a later hour. . . Where we used to live the city ordinance on noise wouldn't have helped much: workers can start at 7 AM. I imagine when they were using the nail gun it was pretty loud. Great capture, BTW.

This photo just put a big grin on my face. I know the crew. Rays roofing. Great guys/roofers. Some of the hardest working guys I know. I can honestly say that they do an unbelievable job. Top quality craftsmanship. All hand nailing. (nail guns can't compare). I manage a large property in Sharon with many large buildings. The first time we used rays roofing we were very impressed. They will be back. We don't mind the early noise. LOL!
