We live fairly close to some train tracks. When we first bought the house this wasn’t an issue because the tracks were never used. In fact, I have never once seen anyone stopped at the railroad crossing for an actual train.
All the sudden… Trains. Several of them. EVERY. DAY.
The bigger problem?
They come at night. 11 o’clock to be exact. And the conductor… he’s whistle happy. I’m convinced that he thinks “let me blow this whistle ONE. MORE. TIME!… Just in case all the babies in a 50 mile radius aren’t awake yet.
There’s nothing worse to me right now than hearing that first whistle… my heart sinks and I hold my breath… getting more irritated with each whistle as they get louder and closer. I just stare at the video monitor waiting… waiting for her to wake up and start screaming.
I’m angry. Like plug my ears, stomp my feet, throw a temper tantrum kind of angry. Is there a place to file a noise complaint on trains? Or maybe I’ll just invite Mr. Conductor over and let HIM try to put Kennedy back to sleep and then we’ll see how many times he wants to blow that whistle.
