I am about to explode

There is bridge re-inforcement work being done about 50 yards away from our offices, at the moment they are using, what looks like, a giant guillotine with a huge block of metal instead of a blade, to hammer the worlds largest RSJ's into the muddy riverbed below- The noise and vibration are off the scale - the hammering is like the loudest clock tick you've ever heard and the vibration is sow low it hurts your head even more, you can feel it in your jaw - I've never known anything like it. I can only describe it as torture - Me thinks one will be enjoying a rather large glass of plonk tonight - if I survive the afternoon without a migrane that is :mad::mad::mad:

Oh wow that sounds horrible!!

Loud noises are evil for setting off migraines, especially annoying noises - I can feel my bran winding itself up for one sometimes.

HOpe you survive OK :)
