Posted by IronPlanet on Oct 19, 2016 10:00:00 AM

When you live in the California Bay Area like many IronPlanet staffers do, there are things you take for granted. Some of them are awesome, some of them, not so much.

In the awesome column we have: wearing shorts well into October, ski slopes within an afternoon's drive, and enough sporting events in any weekend to make grown men weep like little school children.

In the not so much column let's write down: traffic, annoying people in coffee lines, and let's see. . . oh yeah, earthquakes. Big honking earthquakes that make freeways roll like a 1970s waterbed. Like this:


IronPlanet mentions it because this week marks the 27th anniversary the Loma Prieta earthquake rocked our world. It was weird, it hit the "reset" button on our psyches. As soon as the dust settled, people manned their equipment and tools to put highways, homes, and businesses back on their foundations, and in the doing, got shell-shocked residents back on their feet.

A safer, better, more productive way to rock your world is by checking out IronPlanet's October 20 online auction. Reliable Komatsu excavatorsCat crawler tractorsmini excavators and trenchers from JCB, and trucks from Kenworth, Peterbilt, and Volvo.
