Ottumwa Courier has the story:
Unseasonably cold weather struck across the Great Plains this week, bringing snow and freezing temperatures to major wheat-producing regions. Although the extent of the damage is uncertain, some analysts expect significant yield loss in the wheat crop that is growing in the hard-hit states Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas and Colorado.
In the Midwest, cold temperatures and snowfall are delaying corn planting further, with areas of Iowa (America’s No. 1 corn-producing state) under as much as 2 feet of snow.
The gravest danger from the next grand minimum will be the loss of food production. This is a one time event, but worry it could be come an multi-year event, then the real problem will become survival for millions.
