How Long?

200517-075955-JEH20

When we have been ordering groceries for pick up recently, we never get a full order.  It always seems that at least half of our order is out of stock and we aren’t attempting to order paper products which the store website says is out of stock.  We only order what is supposedly in stock according to the store website.  I wonder how long this will go on.  Is this the new normal?

In some ways, it might be the new normal for an extended period.  Many businesses are not going to make it through the lockdowns, all around the world.  These businesses going out of business will in itself create additional disruptions to supply lines and might create even more items being temporarily out of stock.  Add in the trade wars and the impacts of increasingly severe weather due to climate changes and we might be in for a future of continually adjusting what we can buy and thus eat.
