Hyland Ski construction making grown man cry


What would it take to make you crack and tear up on TV news? For Leo Hoffman, the near-constant construction noise at the Hyland Ski and Snowboard Area is making him nuts.

Hoffman has to listen to the pounding that starts at 7 a.m. and sometimes goes until 10 p.m. His home sits about two football fields away from the construction site where a 500-foot deep well is being built. Construction started two weeks ago and the pounding should stop in the next week.

Hoffman built his home there in 1992. "Probably the worst decision I ever made," he said to KSTP as he started to tear up.

So how is he going to deal with another week of misery? Drink, he says. Good choice.
