  1. We’ve gone through some winter weather here that just wouldn’t let up. The Grocery stores are running out of dairy and meat; empty shelves in the freezer and refrigerator sections. My spouse barely had any work in an unrelated distribution center because of no deliveries.

    The canned goods are still abundant at the local grocer, and the bad weather here is finally letting up, so the deliveries should start back up soon.

    Reality knocked on my knitted cap today – I saw a mere speck of what’s to come.

  2. -30 to -50°C where -10 to -36°C would be normal over such a wide area is an indicator of how much less energy has come from the sun over recent times.
