1 MAY, 2020 - MAYDAY (RELEASED EARLY ON 27 APRIL)
We guessed 30 days ago, that May 2020 would be "the" COVID19 "build" month (EVER INCREASING IN NUMBERS) do not look for a slowdown in daily numbers, the graph is headed up... with the graph leveling to a horizontal plane around 30 May, then beginning to "turn" downward on 15 June from the sustained peak level.
https://www.bing.com/search?q=oregon+covid+19+graph&FORM=SBRS01 A late June-July slow down of cases to finally allow for "almost normalcy" beginning around 1 August through September 30 to Mid October.
Then... the UNFORTUNATE return to a phase two (of a now combined) flu and Corona attack season all winter long... we hope we are wrong.
May is not looking pretty. A lot of folks were unable to make their car/truck, rent or mortgage payments in April, those who "did" manage to cobble together last month’s payments won’t be able to pay this months payments.
It is backed by nothing, if you think prices are super-high now, just wait until the inflated prices phase begins ... this is always preceded by a cheap gasoline run, and then slowly prices begin to rise all around you, (especially on consumables, imports, and food) electric rates go up, property taxes go up, wages stall, and eventually the inflation is fully in place (to pay for all of this)... been there, watched it happen, done that.
This is the time in life when you learn about how those band-aid/backup stocks, 401k, savings accounts, variable rate mortgages, stock options, and retirement funds SAFETY NET you "thought" you had, really work. (er, or don't).
