They've been doing something with the roof at work for 3 weeks now. Every Monday when I come in and it's still going on, I sigh. I don't actually know what our roof looks like, but it seems like it was covered with lots of rocks. I don't know anything about industrial roofs but at a previous job I was up on the roof one time and it was covered with rocks. I don't know why.

Anyway, the first week and a half, they were vacuuming the rocks off the roof. This meant that it sounded like a 747 was idling over the building all day (with brief breaks). This was followed by a week and a half of banging and drilling sounds. One day when I was off it rained, and when I came in the next day there were garbage cans and 'caution wet floor' signs everywhere (my colleague cheerfully said 'well at least it's not raining inside today!). They're still working on it now, now there's a low-level hum and banging. It leads to a low-level headache. The idling 747 sound was worse though, and that whole time I had a terrible cough I couldn't shake. I thought it might be allergies but since it started right when they did and went away right around the time that they stopped, I can't help but think it's related. How long can it take to fix the roof?

As I was getting ready to leave the house this morning, I thought I caught a whiff of dead body smell. I'm a little worried that the cat might have killed a mouse and left it somewhere that we can't see it. I didn't have time to investigate this morning so I'll see what I can find when I get home. Then when I was almost at work, I smelled something that smelled like an electrical fire. I was driving through an industrial area so I don't really know if it was something out there or if something is wrong with the car, but again no time to really investigate. It only lasted for a minute or so, so I'm hopeful it wasn't the car, but at least I'll have a fresh sniffer if I go out there for lunch and see if there's a smell in the car.
