If your past few months have been anything like mine, you've noticed a lot of businesses with reduced hours and a lot of store shelves with big empty gaps.
That's probably a pretty good summary of the third quarter of 2021. We're all mostly back to doing things in person, despite Delta and "breakthrough Covid." We're getting used to interruptions in supply chains. It's become normal to see stores announcing new, shorter hours because of understaffing. And the price of everything is only going up.
