Living right behind a quarry can be a real pain in the rear end for many reasons. One reason is the fact that it can get loud from traffic on the highway at times. The other reason is because you have little pebbles and rocks that sometimes blow over into your backyard when there is a lot of wind. The falling rocks and little pebbles that came from the quarry once cost me to have my central heating and air conditioning system repaired. The central heating and air conditioning system I have was sitting right around the area where the falling rocks and pebbles can blow into my yard. And during this time it ended up getting into the fan of my central heating and air conditioning system and clogged things. It nearly broke the fan blades too! I had to call the local heating and air conditioning company to send out their very best and most certified heat and a/c specialist to repair my central heating and air conditioning system unit! After this incident happened I ended up having a tarp and a gate put around my central heating and air conditioning system so something like this would not even be possible to happen again. Ever since I have to say I have been pretty well protected from the falling rocks and pebbles from the quarry. But man oh man let me tell you, living where I do is not an easy thing. I hope to someday be able to just sell this place and move away as far as I can from any kind of quarry!
