In connection with the water main replacement work going on in the area, a couple of large trucks have been parked in the street outside our house each night for the last couple of weeks.
We've been philosophical about this (after all, we do want the water supply to continue to function in the future!), but we are getting a bit tired of them. During the day, they reserve their parking spots with tape, and their presence complicates the garbage collection.
We got into conversation with the crew yesterday, and they assured us that the work was nearly finished and the trucks would be off to A'Beckett Street in the city this week. In the meantime, they told us that they would have no objection to us to alleviating the unsightly view by giving the trucks a wash!
