Max Armstrong shares what might happen with the record warm weather including thunderstorms in North Dakota, and fog in Ohio. The move to online shopping is hurting some retailers, for example Payless Shoe stores is closing 1,000 outlets. And Max points out that the very first K-Mart store - opened 55 years ago - is also closing. And from This Week in Agribusiness, Max shares that farmers remember that it was dry and warm back in 2012 - ahead of a record drought year.
