#SOL20: Changes

Zooming . . .


Watching a go-cart go

Different times.

Strange times.



A month ago:  $0.88

302.27% increase in a month

A jump from $0.88 to $3.54

302.27% increase in a month

And then a limit of TWO posted on a sign.

The shelf was full.

No shortage.

302.27% increase in a month

Do I dare?

Do I really need them?

Yes, it would be nice to pick up two more.

The supply in the refrigerator is diminishing.

BUT, they need to be boiled and dyed. It’s a tradition. And then some must be deviled for immediate consumption.

I was shocked a month ago when a friend in the Tulsa, OK area said there weren’t any eggs available in stores. Eggs were plentiful in Iowa and in fact were $0.88 a dozen for large eggs.

“Not in the Upper Midwest,”  I said.

How quickly the lyrics changed.

I spoke too soon . . .

Do I dare purchase chickens in order to produce my own eggs? 

Or to sell to stores?

Who benefits from the 302.27% increased price?

Not the producers. Not the folks on fixed income. Not the folks needing a cheap source of protein.  Not the folks who didn’t stock up. The shelves were full of Large and Extra Large eggs by the dozen. No cartons of medium eggs to be found.

What “shortages” have you found? 

What price increases have shocked you? 

What changes have you had to make?
