    Today had to go to the opposite end of the site to show my guys were to put some signs up, and i was impressed how quiet life can really be!!
    So wonder who else has a quiet scene like these at work??
    Plus i thought it might interest some people, being a windfarm, renewable energy and stuff.

    Im a QS so it really depends on where the site is, can be as busy as a city main street, or as quiet as - well as the above lol.

    Tomorrow im going to Dunbar which is quite a strange town, lots of very old people

    It would be quiet here but for the constant drone of the air conditioning and the tippity-tap-tapping on keyboards.

    Very.

    In the sticks surrounded by countryside. We're the eight acre caravan infested tarmac blot on the lovely landscape.
