I spent the yesterday and then last night at Tanglewood so I could dedicate myself to a couple of tasks that needed some "long attention". It occurred to me that I ought to report on just what spending a night at Tanglewood (in a partially furnished house) was like.

In a word: QUIET. I mean, really really quiet. I mean so quiet that when I killed the lights and settled down to sleep by the fireplace I found that I flat just couldn't. It was just too quiet for me to fall asleep!

Now, I've always been the kind of guy who likes to have a little radio going to fall asleep to. Being a talk show junkie, I'm usually tuned to something throughout the day when I have access to a radio, sometimes over the Internet instead if it's convenient (these guys are a great resource for such things, though there are lots of others too). Here in town I've got a radio to fall asleep to of course, but even without the radio the house itself is filled with things and people and animals and whatnot and so there's always a tiny little bit of "background noise" to help a guy like me fall asleep.

At Tanglewood though there's none of that. Part of it's the ICF construction (very solid, very quiet) and part of it's undoubtedly Tanglewood's location WAY back in the foothills, but the upshot is that if you turn off the lights and hold real still there just ain't nothing to hear in the middle of the night.

I guess that's not 100% true though, come to think of it. There were the occasional oddball noises, just at the edge of my hearing and just barely long enough to make me wonder all kinds of things--was that a mouse? did I forget to close the garage door? was that water? maybe that was the fireplace popping?

I tried and tried for about an hour (seemed like longer) before I finally gave up, restoked the fireplace and turned on the radio. THEN I could fall asleep!

Wow. What a house. I've never been in the like.....
