Michigan is cold but I think this below zero weather is not normal, not sure but I think it's this rare Arctic snap.  We are still at -8 this morning in Colorado by next week we will be in the high 50's.

 

I've never been to Michigan either but will have a summer visit in the new year much better than this cold stuff.

Re: Yesterday at the grocery store

I went to the market yesterday so I wouldn't have to go out in this storm today.  Same thing here, hardly any eggs.  I did grab a dozen but felt bad for people that showed up later as I am sure they ran out.   They were also running low on bags of salad and milk.

 

It has been pouring rain all morning long, and the winds during the night were crazy and still are!!

Temps are mild here (RI) but will drop rapidly later today as the cold front approaches.

I actually took in my Christmas decor last night and glad I did as I am watching my neighbors stuff fly by my windows, LOL!

Re: Yesterday at the grocery store

Trader Joe's was well stocked with eggs this past Wednesday as well as organic free range fresh chicken.

 

The local market had less eggs yesterday but the prices have been stable.

There was only one brand that was above the $5 mark.  And those eggs were not even organic!

 

I'm not sure about Whole Foods; we barely stop in there anymore.

I'm what my sister has labeled, "a natural vegetarian," so I dont really keep track of this.

 

What's this with the lack of, or high price of "eggs?"  Is this because of "bird flu,"

I've been buying eggs from a local farmer.  You can see the chickens roaming in the pasture beyoond the market building.  They are really good but expensive.  I pay $7.50 for a dozen but they are worth it.

If all else fails and you need eggs for a recipe, try the egg substitutes.

Re: Yesterday at the grocery store

Today at Trader Joes people were limited to 4 dozen eggs.  Who would need more than that?

Re: Yesterday at the grocery store

At $6 a dozen that's only 50 cents an egg. Surely an egg is worth 50 cents. I only buy certified free range eggs. Those who buy eggs that are a couple dollars a dozen are subsidizing factory farms where hens are kept in rows of cages, so small they can never turn around, never stretch their wings...their entire lives.

Everything is up because of the stupid energy policies in place now.
