Gee, I'm actually starting to feel sorry for the Left.
They just lost ONE of their HUNDREDS of propaganda
platforms, giving the Right an advantage of ONE.

That is outrageous!  And I think a lot of it is manufactured hysteria.  We were at Costco on Sunday and they had no supply issues whatsoever.  We also visited a local independent grocer on Saturday, where we stock up on our meats and fish and their shelves were full and the store packed with people.

shelves in suburban Chicago are in pretty good shape.  TP and paper towel purchases are being limited to one per.

pint of strawberries -$1.77,  green pepper & cucumber 50-cents each.  grass fed, organic beef and plant burger has been on sale.

been a pretty mild winter, so far, by Chicago standards.  Latest date for first snowfall ( >1" ) ever was just after Christmas.  We got a wimpy 3".

no sub zero temps.  the worst weather seems to go north or far south of us.

We're supposed to get 5 more inches tomorrow but turn to rain after 10pm.  Our stores are slowly getting the shelves stocked. I really do not want to shovel any more snow.

75 million Americans under alert for winter storm, chilling temperatures

A massive storm just left over a foot of snow across North Dakota and Iowa.

we dodged this storm, too.

didn't get 1/4" last night.

plenty of sunshine today, solar panels chugging along 

looking to see sunrise earlier than 7am and sunset later than 5pm.  still 10-14 days away

We had our big storm at the beginning of the year which was bad enough to close down portions of our main highways.  Our kids had to wait  it out to make the long 2 day drive home.  Today we had fog and very cold weather. It was a good time to make it to the store which is less than 10 minutes away as the shelves weren't empty yet although there were big gaps on the shelves and what they had available  was certainly higher in price.

Snowfall this season is less than half of normal but when was the last time we had less snow by this date?

So far looks like 4 more inches of snow out there...topping it off with heavy sleet and freezing rain to heavy rain around 10 pm.  Our shelves were almost back to normal. I went to Walmart at 7 am and it was like Christmas time in there and empty shelves again.

still hardly any snow.

December was much warmer than normal - record warmth +6-something degrees for the month

January is running -3 degrees colder than average.

But, cold dry air from polar region, so no snow.

Lake Michigan ice coverage increasing with January’s freezing temps, and more single digits are ahead

If you haven’t yet spotted ice shaped like thick pancakes or built up in sculptures along Lake Michigan, there may be more opportunities ahead.

Ice cover is ticking up as temperatures cool, and Lake Michigan could see peak coverage close to its long-term average, according to the latest projections from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory, which records and models Great Lakes ice coverage.

As of this week, about 15% of the Great Lakes surface is covered with ice. Lake Michigan’s coverage — over 16% — is just below average for this time of year.

In parts of the region, a balmy December gave way to freezing January days. Lake Michigan’s surface temperature was still slightly above average heading into the new year and at 38 degrees around mid-January was hovering right above average, like the other lakes.

“With the cold weather we’ve seen, we’ve seen significant ice growth,” said James Kessler, physical scientist with NOAA’s Great Lakes Environmental Research Lab. “Now we’re sitting pretty close to average for Lake Michigan.”
