Noisy A/C

Here in Salt Lake the temps have been near 100 and over. I've noticed that when I turn on the car after work, the air conditioner runs full blast and it is extremely loud. At least as loud as the ICE itself. Day before yesterday it was over 100 and both the A/C and ICE came on and it was really a racket. Is it normal for A/C to be so loud?

Something I should have mentioned: I'm talking about from the outside with the windows down. Sorry, the whole discussion went off in the wrong direction. I first noticed it when I started the car remotely. You could hear it from way across the parking lot. I couldn't believe that was my quiet, high-tech Volt. It isn't terribly noisy from inside with windows up. The air blowing from the vents drowns it out. I think from what people have written that they're all pretty noisy. With a "normal" car you don't hear it much because the engine is so loud.
