Up until midnight things were fine.  I was busy knitting a bright turquoise hat listening to Rubyfruit Radio.  It was when I lay my head down to sleep that I noticed the bruit outside my bedroom window.  From midnight till 4 am, workers used shovels to move construction debris into a metal dump truck, a consistent scrape, clunk, scrape, clunk rhythm that kept me awake all night.

Earplugs are important if you are a light sleeper.  Unfortunately my many pairs have been scattered across the globe these past 6 years.
