USS Harry S. Truman

The other day I was sitting on the couch and I was startled by the loud horn that went off outside my window...now, I am used to loud noises outside. I live right on the water, across from a shipyard and the downtown ferry toots its horn (one long, 3 short) every 30 minutes, but this horn shook the windows.


It is the USS Harry S. Truman all of 100 feet from my apartment. How cool is that?

Wow! You are so lucky to have such a surprising view. I just looked outside my window after hearing a large noise ... J & R Waste Management Systems ... here for the weekly trash pickup.

I live near train tracks and we get the horn too. 2 longs, 1 short, and 1 more long as it crosses the street!

I know the pattern by heart now!

Great pics!
