Good luck finding a contractor.

Before all of these disasters, contractors were booked months out.

Hell - I had termite guys in yesterday and the termite guy was booked three weeks out! I was lucky to get in them in same day. But, you don't need that much skill to be a termite guy. So that means the skilled labor is locked up tight.

And then, one of the termite guys said he knows people turning down work left and right. They just can't get to it.

I'm actually surprised this hasn't shown up in inflation yet. They have a severe shortage of labor, and people must be spending or else there wouldn't be a shortage.

I REMEMBER THE GOOD OLD DAYS WHEN WE COULD BUY DURSBAN AT HOME DEPOT ...

*looks around for twitching Californian eco-freaks*

AHA! Got some! We're deporting your asses to Massachusetts!

It's part of my new Catch and Release Somewhere Else plan to help with those exploding eucalyptus trees. :-)

I think you'd have to deport all the women here. So......I think the men would come after you with pitchforks. Good luck.

No no, it'll be classic Voltaire ...

From time to time, we need a Catch and Release Somewhere Else Plan, complete with the Official Catch and Release Bus (because we're cheap and they are unwashed), because it is good from time to time to relocate eco-freaks pour encourager les autres. :-)

It could also be I'm tempted to be Panglossian when the rewards are so YUGE. :-)
