Okay people, here’s the deal: last week we got torrential rain and long story short insurance is paying for a whole new basement, including furnace and appliances. It’s created an interesting conundrum, though. For the week of the cleanup, I had five industrial fans and two industrial dehumidifiers running. It drew so much power we had to steal the dryer and furnace breakers. This lead to an overwhelming amount of white noise in my house. You could only make a phone call from the upstairs front room, and talking face to face downstairs was impossible. It. Was. So. Loud. As shitty and annoying as it was, though, it had this side effect: I slept like the dead. I slept so deeply I would wake up in the same position I fell asleep in eight hours prior. Jesus Christ, it was like a narcotic. Part of it, I think, is that the dogs also slept because they couldn’t hear street noise. I think I may sleep thin when they’re fussing. So...how do I reproduce this? I thought of a white noise generator, but I don’t know if that would be effective. The noise generated by the machines couldn’t really be heard in the bedroom; it just drowned out everything else. Any idea what could mimic that? Happy drunk thread, everyone. Discuss.
