Things looking up in the neighborhood? @ 08:06 pm


We got a notice from the city that there will be a hearing about a proposal to resurrect the dead gas station next door. That's good.
The new proposal includes an automated carwash. That's bad.
The new carwash will have doors to mitigate noise. That's good.
I have no confidence that the city will actually enforce existing noise regulations or care if the doors happen to break or get disabled for convenience. That's bad.
The carwash comes with a free frogurt. That's good.
I was lying about the frogurt. That's bad.

There'll be a public hearing at city hall, so we may show up.

Just make sure they bribe you regularly not to make the noise complaint...

I can see how this is a mixed blessing. Having it as a defunct operation is not a good thing, but having it be loud all weekend (I doubt it will be a problem in the evenings, much) could suck. Of course, people get used to a remarkable range of noises(I know several people who live next to railroad tracks of various sorts and I worked in a residential facility directly under [as in no more than a couple hundred feet] the approach path to LAX), but should you ever want to sell the place, the noise would still be an issue. And even if you're no longer consciously processing the noise, it can still be impacting your health.

Owner: But you get your choice of topping!
Homer: [relieved] That's good.
Owner: The toppings contains Potassium Benzoate.
Homer: [stares]
Owner: That's bad.
