Business last night took me to a newer subdivision near Milliken, CO.
Driving down the streets around 1900 hours, I noticed one pickup truck after another in the driveways. Probably 40% of the vehicles were pickups.
The homes in this subdivision are no more than eight years old. Selling price, new, for these homes, was under $200,000. Most residents are in their late 30’s.
Sorry, nothing profound in this post, just observations. My guess is many of the families depend on the petroleum industry for part of their income. Probably most households have both adults working.
My part time gig is contacting people who are behind on their mortgages. Business has been slow due to COVID forbearances. That will probably change with a double whammy of the Greenie’s war on oil and the SloJo/Ho war on the economy.
The prospect saddens me. The folks living in that subdivision will soon see their American dream become a nightmare.
