Sleepless in Freedom!

It was another awful night here at the Littlefield household. We fell asleep listening to the whooshing of the turbine blades and were wide awake at 3:00 a.m. still hearing them. Though, this morning the whooshing was accompanied by the drone. When we finally gave up and got out of bed, we weren’t surprised to see that the wind was blowing from the south.

This spring has been really rough with more “partying” happening on our side of the ridge. So far, for the months of April, May and June our tracking looks like this:

4/10/15 Loud Most of Day / Evening
4/11/15 Loud Morning
4/13/15 Loud Morning / Afternoon / Evening
4/14/15 Very Loud Early Morning / Morning
4/16/15 Very Loud Afternoon / Evening
4/17/15 Very Loud Early Morning / Morning
4/23/15 Loud Early Morning / Morning
4/30/15 Loud Early Morning
5/2/15 Loud All Evening into Morning
5/4/15 Very Loud All Evening
5/9/15 Extremely Loud All Evening
5/10/15 Extremely Loud Early Morning / Morning
5/15/15 Extremely Loud All Evening
5/24/15 Very Loud Early Morning / Morning
5/26/15 Loud Early Morning / Morning
5/30/15 Loud Early Morning/All Day / Evening
6/10/15 Loud Early Morning / Evening
6/11/15 Very Loud Early Morning

At least we don’t have to listen to them all day, too. We get to go to work and the kids get to go to school. The good news is, that no one complained of headaches this morning. Might be because we all took some aspirin last night in preparation.

That’s all for now. Have a wonderful day!
