MORNING Midwest Digest, Jan. 28, 2019

Max Armstrong talks about the snow storm and wind chills, as well as the USDA getting back to work and a farmer turned drug dealer.

The snow continues to pummel areas of the Upper Midwest, and the bitter cold will set in tonight and hang out most of the week. However, this weekend offers a warmup.

The USDA will get back to work today, and start implementing the new farm bill. 

An elderly Kentucky farmer could emerge as a witness in a drug traffiking case. To make extra money, he drove  semi-truck ... and sold drugs. He said he sold them to save his son from vengeful Mexican drug cartel members.

Remember to check on elderly neighbors this week as dangerous wind chills blow across the region.
