Response to underpants (Original post)

29. I can't speak for how much the COVID catastrophe has affected this but the several years of terrible

wide-spread catastrophic weather haven't helped this situation either. Hurricanes, tornados, and severe flooding haven't exactly reduced demand for whatever supply has been able to produce. The homes lost to forest fires had similar impact on supply. These conditions have also raised prices for rental and standing homes in our area far above what market value should be as people move here to escape weather, fires, and COVID.

I don't know how many here recall that when the 2 Gulf wars and Afghan war got into gear there was so much plywood and MDF diverted to military use it sent the prices through the roof. Regional demands are causing some of the same thing to happen now, IMO.
