CNN Headline:

All that time in the kitchen during this pandemic has led to a nationwide shortage of Mason jars (link)

If we would all smoke more it might help free-up some of the supply.

I am genuinely surprised at how quickly these government shut-downs resulted in Soviet-style shortages of common goods.

When I unjarred all of my loose tobacco for shipping, the jars all smelled so strongly of tobacco my wife couldn't use any of it for canning.

I thought they smelled great!
