Wierd Noises

I’m not sure why, but the construction site across the street has been making noises that sound exactly like a hard drive about to die all day.

Library construction, with concrete pump.

It must be the concrete pumper, or maybe the (concrete) vibrator. (Get your mind out of the gutter. I know I’m going to go to disturbing search result hell for this, but after you place concrete, you need to vibrate it so that the air bubbles can escape and the fresh concrete can ooze around all of the rebar. And I’m not going to make things worse my mentioning the 2 brands of concrete pumps)

But to someone who is surrounded by hard drives and has had a few drives go bad, that sound instantly grabs your attention. Every time it happens.
