They have sprayed so heavy today it is unbelievable. Heads up. Oh I am going to Safeway shopping now. I will take some pictures. God bless.

Thurs. Afternoon Update,
West Coast port impasse beefs up US meat stockpile
35 Mins Ago Reuters. U.S. meat exporters caught in the middle of the West Coast port labor standoff diverted millions of pounds of chilled pork and beef into cold storage facilities over the last few weeks, creating an over supply of meat, analysts said.
Redirected protein shipments come as frozen inventories are starting to build ahead of the spring grilling season and the summer season for bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches.
A contract dispute between the dockworkers union and shipping lines has led to months of cargo backups at 29 U.S. West Coast ports.
Already-burdensome meat supplies are pressuring wholesale prices, particularly for pork. Shoppers could see added savings the longer dock negotiations drag on, analysts said.
The U.S.Department of Agriculture's cold storage report for January at 2 p.m. on Friday will confirm the impact of the port dispute on the meat sector.
Some analysts,on average, forecasted total January pork stocks at 572.7 million pounds and 471 million pounds for beef. Both could show the largest increase for January in three years.
"We're expecting very big numbers'' because the amount of product that could not be shipped landed in warehouses or was sold at a potential loss for processors, said John Ginzel, an analyst with Linn Group. http://www.cnbc.com/id/102440023

Roughly two-thirds of U.S. meat exports, worth about $9.25 billion last year, rely on ocean freight. Of that amount, almost 80 percent left the United States via West Coast ports, according to the U.S. Meat Export Federation (USMEF).
Fearful of losing customers to foreign competitors, meat exporters are paying more to move product by air, freeze it or redirect purchases through Canadian and Mexican ports.
"This is not just cutting the skin, it's cutting the bone,'' USMEF CEO Phil Seng told Reuters,referring to the financial impact of the port dispute.
U.S. Labor Secretary Tom Perez is in San Francisco to try to help broker a deal to break the labor stalemate.
Even if an agreement is reached, it will take weeks and possibly months to clear the backlog of product, analysts said.

Piper Jaffray has an interesting report out this morning on the effects of the port slowdown in Los Angeles. While much of the discussion has been about the impact on perishable goods, as the dispute drags on, it is now impacting apparel and footwear.
Piper's concern is that even if the dispute is resolved in the next week, it will take six to eight weeks to smooth out the supply chain. This means Easter deliveries will be disrupted, impacting first-half margins.
The firm notes the biggest risks are in furniture, branded footwear, apparel and toys.
Read More US manufacturers feel the pain of port dispute:

Branded footwear companies like Steve Madden, Wolverine World Wide, and Crocs are at risk because seasonal offerings move distinctly from boots to spring goods.
Toy companies like Mattel and Hasbro and household and beauty products makers such as Newell Rubbermaid, Jarden, and Williams Sonoma could also get hit. Piper estimates 50 percent of all these inbound products go through the L.A. ports.
Some companies with large order commitments for Easter in early April and licensed movie goods are electing to use air freight, which will produce margin pressures. Coupled with foreign exchange headwinds, the expectation is that guidance will be coming in on the light side. http://www.cnbc.com/id/102438000
