You may remember I'm mainly in building automation at my day job. Boring but pays the bills...

I've been amazed at how red hot our business has been during whatever covid name you want to use...

The commercial buildings everywhere are empty. Owners are taking this time to do a bunch of deferred maintenance but that is starting to run out. New buildings are being rushed to completion and new ones are coming out of the ground. Not sure why...

However, our major suppliers are about to be completely out of computer chips to build controllers. The problem is Fab plants around the world are idle. A secondary issue is there are billions of dollars in product floating around on ships that can't unload to due covid restrictions.

Industry, in general, may come to a screeching halt soon.

Not wanting to focus on the negative,  I feel that many people have already forgotten last years pain. I think we need to stay positive and continue to focus on shoring up our defences to be ready for the next wave. I'm pretty sure the powers that be are engineering the next wave of restrictions. they can't help it, they crave the power...

Just a thought
