Wednesday/ decibels galore

Is this a missile launcher?  No, a vacuum truck.  And it may not look like it – but boy, when they start up this machine, it makes A LOT OF NOISE ! (That house behind it looks a little like the south portico of the White House, does it not?).

Sometimes I cannot tell if a noise near my house comes from the back alley or from the street in front of the house.  So when it sounded like a Boeing airplane was about to take off from right in front of my house, I had to go outside to check out the source of all the commotion.  It was a vacuum truck, apparently cleaning out a blockage in the water drain (water main?) on the sidewalk.
