I sense this calm before the storm feeling right now. I fear a serious economic disruption that could affect so many of us. I hope the trajectory changes, but I have my doubts. Prices are going way up from common items to larger purchases. I got take out at a restaurant last week and there was a sign at the register. “We can’t honor the prices on our menu for the following items…..” Apple just announced they are cutting iPhone 13 production due to chip shortages. I have seen delays spanning months on computers I wanted to order for clients. Holiday gifts you may want to buy for your loved ones may be in short supply. Some of the new Apple Watch 7 models going on sale this Friday have delivery dates pushed out to late November and early December. You may be putting off car repair, a water heater, a computer, or an iPhone. My advice would be – Buy Now! Commit to your parts / items now, even for installation at a later time, whether the delay is by choice or reality.
