In Tuesday’s paper, there was an article about the number of dump trucks traveling up and down our local streets (“Down on the dumps,” Feb. 16).
I made my choice to live where I do for the quiet streets, wonderful views and the safe neighborhood. I absolutely agree that the traffic, noise and exhaust from the dump trucks are getting on my nerves. However, I am thankful for the clean-up crews who are working around the clock to prevent any more events like last week’s.
Yes, the dump trucks are loud and run all night long, but my yard was destroyed by the recent mud flow and I am thankful that they are out there cleaning up the mess. I think a few sleepless nights are worth a little bit of peace and the safety of knowing everything has been done to protect my life and my property in case of another disaster like last week.
