Wegmans stores are experiencing a cat food shortage as a result of weather challenges over the last few weeks especially in Pennsylvania, Wegmans spokeswoman Laura Camera said.

For when you want to make your personal space your drinking space.

Among the many things that have been affected during the pandemic is the amount of person space we have. In some ways, not commuting to the office or school means you have all sorts of space, because your home is your castle, right?

But in families with multiple members who’re all working or attending classes from home, you might all be sharing the living room for several hours a day. That’s an especially likely scenario in Japan, where homes generally aren’t big enough for a dedicated home
