Max Armstrong talks about severe weather, the flooding/planting crisis, USDA relocation, interest rates and using train travel this fall.

Severe weather continues to beat up the heartland. Minnesota had its turn yesterday.

More non-farm media outlets are reporting the flooding and planting crisis.

Which location will get the 700 USDA employees? An announcement will be coming in days or weeks, says Sonny Perdue.

Interest rates are dropping again. 

Amtrak is hoping you might take a train ride for fall or winter travel. They're offering a 2-for-1 deal through Monday.
