If you know me in real life, you will know that I am not a morning person. I'm a bear in the morning, in part because I don't sleep well and because I'm just a bit of a cow whenever I wake up. So how do I feel waking up on Monday morning, on my first real day back at work (writing), to the sound of heavy construction at 7:30 am? Not so good. And I've yet to figure our how I'll make a good writing day in spite of the noise. Earplugs? Music? Speed?
This may call for a move to the library.

Oh man, I can definitely sympathize on the construction irritation. My advice is to complain, frequently and loudly, to whomever will listen. You may get a free air conditioner out of it. Worked for us.
