    Am I the only NJ person here who was rudely awoken at 2am, jumped out of bed, ran downstairs to check if something blew up in the basement, then ran outside to check the horizon for mushroom clouds?

    Yeah, I know, CA folks laugh at a 3.1 quake, but when it NEVER happens in NJ, it is extremely confusing. The end is nigh, my friends!

    Congrats on the new gig. Your poster buddies and I are happy for you.

    I guess all that should be done now is for your poster buddies, and even me, to get an invite to the beach house before the weather turns. @Mike will bring some of the free booze he’s been bragging about, @graphicguy will bring some homemade sauce and I’ll bring a few rib eyes. And you know it won’t take long for @roadburner to get there. Edmunds knows how to contact us.

    Exactly. When something that never happens happens, your brain reacts sharply. I'd say it felt more like a truck crashing on my lawn rather than driving down the street. It was only 5km deep and the epicenter was just 7 miles or so from me. There was an initial boom that woke us, and the windows and bed shook for maybe 3-4 secs after. So, while earthquake crossed my mind, I thought there must have been an explosion given that initial boom.

    It's all about what you're used to. Growing up in SoCal, I experienced my fair share of earthquakes - Sylmar '71, the Loma Prieta quake in '89 (I was 300 miles away, and it was still strong there), a few others. By the time you realize what's happening, it usually over.

    But, years ago, I was on a business trip to Milwaukee and one night there was a tornado warning pretty close to the hotel. I was terrified.

    I was actually vacationing in Big Bear when that one hit. My first ever experience with an earthquake. I saw the picture on the wall start to move first, then looked at the table and saw my water vibrating like Jurassic Park (of course, this was before the movie. lol).

    During one of my many trips to one of our suppliers in the LA area in the late ‘80, a 5.1 quake hit the area. A group of us were having lunch on the patio at this supplier when a guy runs up to us, almost out of breath, to ask if we were alright. When we asked why he said, “didn’t you feel the quake we just had”? None of us felt a thing. He goes on to tell us everyone in the building felt it and everyone was OK but a couple pieces of machinery on the production floor broke loose from the heavy duty bolts that held them to the floor and moved about 6 inches but other than that there was no damage. We all went in to see the machinery and sure enough, they had skated a few inches from their mounting bolts. Up until then I always thought you’d feel a pretty good shake with a 5.1 quake. Turns out I was wrong and was told by the guys, that have lived in southern Cal all their lives, that some quakes can be very localized even on the same block.

    Everyone I really appreciate all your support!

    We have a lot of irons in the fire.

    New job (again) for me.

    Kids first day of school was today and remote learning 3 days a week

    We are a couple weeks away from putting our home on the market and we are looking at the first three to replace it today.

    Lease is up on the Enclave in three months. That’s in the shop getting the door fixed as we speak. Unfortunately, car shopping is taking a back seat to house shopping. If we aren’t in a new home by the time it goes back I’ll probably extend it. The B2B warranty is 4/48 so it’s covered a little while longer.

    I was on the 11th floor of the only high rise in my town - the entire building swayed back and forth (as it was designed to do). When I got in my car to drive home and learned that the quake was up in the Bay Area, I knew then and there that it was a bad one.

    I remember my dad taking us to see the VA hospital in LA after the '71 quake.

    I'm thinking it's going to be Williamstown/Sewell or Mullica Hill. We keep looking in your area, but not quite finding what we want at the price point we want to be. We are looking to keep it around $425 or so.

    Most of the stuff in your neighborhood that is what we want is pushing low 500's with 18-20K taxes.

    Good luck house hunting! My daughter and son-in-law just bought a house in Connecticut. The market there is crazy. Every desirable house sells within 24 Hours with multiple bids, all over the asking price. Accepted bids depend on how fast you can close. It’s similar out here on the West Coast too. Low inventory and lots of buyers looking for those low interest rates. May the Force be with you.

    Same thing is happening here, even on my street. Earlier this summer a nice but fairly typical 3 bed/1 bath/no garage/5000 sq ft lot/2-storey 1950s house up the street from me got into a bidding war before selling for well over asking at $386K. Not to be outdone, a similar house 4 doors up from that one but with a small attached garage just changed hands and the new owners are doing a full gut reno. I am guessing even the interior is being reconfigured as the chimney has been removed, along with the electrical and water service locations, the attached garage is gone, and this week a new roof is being installed. Still to come is some sort of new exterior siding. Where the garage used to be was excavated for a full foundation and then a 2-story addition with new garage built there. Presumably the upper level of the new construction is a master suite. I hate to think how much they will have in it by the time it's over. I have to think they paid at least $300K for the old untouched house. They must be playing the long game on this one.

    Here's what it looked like before all the work:

    Many years ago when my kids were little I was woken by the bedroom door rattling like one of them was tugging at the door knob. I went out and found them still asleep in their beds. Later I saw on TV that there was a 4.5 up in the mountains. Weird feeling.

    That is a total bummer! I assume she has been wearing a mask. It may be contained if she wasn't really close to anyone else....and everyone was distancing and wearing masks. Guess everyone should get tested......big mess with a jury involved too.

    Glad to hear it hasn't affected her health. There seem to have been a high percentage of false positives with certain tests. Unless she tests positive for the blood antibodies, I'd assume she had nothing.

    I didn't have a second antibody test but I suspect I had the typically mild case a few weeks after I had the first self-prescribed antibody test. No big deal for me.

    Wife couldn't start her MKC yesterday. It hadn't been run in about 2 weeks. After 23 hours on the charger, the green light started blinking, so at least 80% charged now.
    It's 4 1/2 years old so I'll probably just get a new battery in a day or 2.

    A friend of mine lost a bidding war on this place. 1955 build, maybe renovated in the 70s (needs a kitchen bad, but 3 car garage cancels that out) so it needs heavy freshening, 1500 sq ft, adjacent to busy arterial street, next door to a hoarder house maybe the cheapest neighborhood in town - it went for 800K

    Where is the 3rd garage bay?

    No such thing as 1500 sq ft in my town. 2500 sq ft and in need of renovation would be $500k.

    A friend of mine lost a bidding war on this place. 1955 build, maybe renovated in the 70s (needs a kitchen bad, but 3 car garage cancels that out) so it needs heavy freshening, 1500 sq ft, adjacent to busy arterial street, next door to a hoarder house maybe the cheapest neighborhood in town - it went for 800K

    Presumably the upper level of the new construction is a master suite. I hate to think how much they will have in it by the time it's over. I have to think they paid at least $300K for the old untouched house. They must be playing the long game on this one.

    Here's what it looked like before all the work:

    Probably tandem. Technically, that's how mine is configured, and a neighbor across the street with a similar set up has a Soul, a Sportage and a Sorento stuffed in his.

    (but, pretty much nothing else)

    Does that mean the right bay is 2 cars deep?

    I would find that incredibly frustrating.

    My next door neighbor has the 3 car garage with one of them 2 deep.
    He had a 67 Corvette convertible with a 427 and side pipes in there.
    Kind of felt like an earthquake when it started an idled. ;)

    My guess is yes.

    If the third car is one that doesn't get driven much, I can see the benefit is reducing the footprint of the garage area, compared to a traditional 3-across setup.

    I’m glad that I built a 3 car garage. Even though it’s detached, I can fit all 3 vehicles and plenty of junk in the attic.

    We had a 5.2 magnitude earthquake before dawn back in April 2008. I was sound asleep and my wife woke me up. I told her, "It's an earthquake, go back to sleep."
    And I did.
