I read Sarah Hoyt. Have for a long time. She is a "prepper." Writes well, gives good advice and grounded in common sense. Her articles help me with weekly up-grading of what lies ahead, to take it seriously and continue to act on being ready.
Gas here now $3.09/$3.19/$3.29 give or take. Costs more to drive so we now take that into account. The Dodge truck stays home more often and her Kia is daily/weekly transportation.
Some store shelves have noticeable spaces: milk, cream and other basics are up in price. Her tells me the price rise on most everything we shop for. Not just a few cents, but dollars more.
Many articles on the net regarding the bottlenecks of shipping containers stuck in ports, ports overloaded and nowhere to put the empty containers, much less the full ones. Serious trucking problems. It is starting to add up and we are now seeing the tip of the iceberg ahead.
Consider getting your turkey, ham or a roast if these are in your holiday habits. Apparently, this will be the most expensive Thanksgiving meal ever in history.
Could be Hamburger Helper, a side of Mac and Cheese with a large slice of pumpkin pie smothered in whipping cream to finish it off. And then...!
FYI: Found frozen turkey's for 98 cents a pound at Wally World on Thursday.

Down the road neighbor's horse again out of its pen and visiting closer to us. Ears back, horse not happy, folks are stopping. I rolled down the window and talked to the horse. Figured it the neighborly thing to do. It had just bolted in front of the Dodge having been charged by the black horse on the other side of the fence. Territorial horse play.
