I woke up very early this morning, possibly due to the tremors emanating from the US.  An hour after Donald Trump was officially elected as the country's 45th president I was in my local Costco store but I didn't see any evidence of panic buying, apart from one person with hundreds of bottles of mineral water on his trolley.  Perhaps we won't have a nuclear war after all, but last year some American friends already warned me that I'd have to take them in if Trump won the race to the White House, so perhaps I should have bought some extra supplies after all.
