I'm in the midwest and I'm seeing a couple of things.
For the first time in about 3-4 years I'm starting to see forclosures
I've noticed everyone, and I mean everyone complaining about food prices
People are also complaining about building supplies and how hard they are to get and also the prices
I was actually told by contractor to just wait don't build anything right now
I've noticed the houses being built are super expensive and look extremely low end and cheap, we're talking close to
million dollar houses only having five cabinets in the kitchen and very low end finishes.
I've noticed people are complaining about utilities. Somehow this has not affected me personally, my utilities seem to be the same for right now.
CRIME...........this is the worst, it's happening. Crime is seeping into areas that never had it before.
Car breakins, purse snatching etc.
Any noticable changes in your area?
The preacher man says it's the end of time
And the Mississippi River she's a-goin' dry
The interest is up and the Stock Market's down
And you only get mugged if you go downtown
I live back in the woods, you see
My woman and the kids, and the dogs, and me
I got a shotgun, a rifle, and a 4-wheel drive
And a country boy can survive
Country folks can survive
Yesterday I paid $95+tax for a snow shovel, because the one I bought last time around was some cheap Chinese piece of #. For the cost of another six inches of handle it could have been a great design that would last for years.
