The noise, like ten thousand spoons.

You need to be a sound sleeper to live in that neighborhood given the number of ambulances and aid cars with sirens blaring on the way to emergency department of the hospital located there. If they say the noise and vibrations are bad enough to keep people awake I tend to believe its more than just a snowflake situation.

Totem Lake isn't even really Kirkland. It's more like a cancerous lesion that somehow detached from Mill Creek and wandered south.

If they didn't want me to sleep there, they wouldn't have 18-packs of Queen size mattresses on the warehouse floor.

One [Kirkland] resident who wanted to remain anonymous said, "this is really bad for my work. I can't even sleep. There's a lot of vibration at night and because of the vibration, I can't sleep. The whole house is shaking."

This will help you sleep.

It's more of a SoDoSoPa since Whole Foods moved in. No kidding.

CSB: doomscrolling from bed in Kirkland right now. It's quiet though- most of the construction is on the other side of town.

We did have Costco's headquarters for a while, but they moved to Issaquah a long time ago (another Seattle suburb about 30 minutes south). We still have one of their first warehouses though.

They excised the worst of the tumor when they bulldozed Totem Lake Mall. It's getting better.

I live in Sequim, I give a fark about Kirklands construction noise.  I don't even know where Kirkland is, I always take the Auburn turnoff when going to Spokane.

So I know where Auburn is.

As someone that's worked 2nd shift for several years, welcome to my world folks.

Scrotum Lake can suck my totem.

Why Ironic tag?  Are Kirkland residents notorious for being loud at night?

Who goes to Spokane unless they're getting paid to go there? They're not really human there.

Is that where the name of the Costco brand comes from?

Yes.

BTW, the Costco in Kirkland is to be avoided at all costs. The recent influx of immigrant families in the area like to shop as a family, which makes going there a real bother. Feature this: Mom, dad, baby in a stroller, add a couple more kids, plus grandma and grandad blocking the aisle for those damn free food stations. Now do this with a whole bunch of families. Lesson learned, stay away from this location. (It's also a biatch to get in and out of as the parking lot is situated oddly.)

Seriously folks, it's not a mini Disneyland. Let all the non paying family members stay at home while only one or two of you shop.

If you can't do the construction without blocking the road for more than 20mi it's at a time, you can't do the construction. fark off and build your project somewhere else, or figure out how to not block the road.

Could be worse. The one near me is overrun with prescription-addled boomers during all business hours. It's like being in an episode of The Walking Dead.

I grew up in Kirkland, it's no longer sleepy (but was in the late 70s), Totem Lake has always been a cess-pool.  Do any of you locals remember when they had the indoor water slide place in the upper mall?

4th Ave S is the best Costco in the area, huge parking lot with multiple exits, gas and car wash, only full of families on the weekend.

That's how my DH goes in. I have been here since 1980. Do you remember the summer carnival?
