  I certainly take you seriously.  I have suffered the same
  kind of problems.  One morning last summer I was driven
  out of my house before sunrise by a neighbor's faulty
  home alarm system which was set off by a thunderstorm
  and continued for four hours.   Barking dogs have also
  caused extreme disturbances, and I am currently seriously
  considering buying a 10-acre tract of land in the rural area
  just to have some peace and quiet.  In other words, the 
  noise-makers are about to drive me out of town.  They include
  barking dogs, auto stereos, loud mufflers, and boom cars.
  Maybe I'll end up a hermit.  I'm certainly not anti-social
  by nature.  I used to have a fairly pleasant social life in
  this community.  I could walk anywhere in the University
  of Oklahoma area and run into friendly familiar people on
  the sidewalks.   Now I see roller-bladers with earphones.
  There were plenty of hang-outs where conversations were
  easy to have and making new acquaintances came easy
  also.  The noise-makers have ruined all that.
