The cold snap is over (it will be back), which makes it a good day to put on your best mask and pick up some groceries. If commodity prices and the supply chain have you down, here’s something from Harriet Hill’s Montreal Gazette Facts and Fancies column, January 12, 1952:

FAMILY ACCOUNTS: We offer, without comment, these items from our family accounts for January, 1942. Milk tickets $1.25 for 10, today $2. Butter 37 cents a pound, today 72 cents. Eggs 34 cents a dozen, today 50. Bread 10 cents a loaf, today 18. Cream 13 cents a half pint, today 19. Potatoes 10 pounds for 33 cents, today 65 cents.

Fast forward to 2021: Environment Canada forecasts periods of light snow with a maximum of -2 C. Wind chill -19 in the morning.

In the evening: Periods of snow, minimum minus -8 C.
