In the meantime, you can get noise-cancelling headphones. They aren't cheap, but they are just amazing. Stop by at a store that sells them and ask to try them out.

I run into the noise problem all the time when I am trying to study, I have three teenagers and a multitude of cats.

The noise-cancelling headphones were a bit pricey, so I tried out a pair that were passive noise reduction. (If you want the brand and model, email me offlist). I also picked up some of those "environments" type CD's.

The difference is astonishing. The rain/surf/what have you sounds don't interfere with my concentration, but totally block out the noise (to the point that someone can watch TV right next to me without a problem)

The particular headphones I have also has an independent volume control which helps--I can easily turn it up a little if the background noise warrants.

They are a bit heavy, but I found it a small price to pay to be able to think.
