    After a brief reprieve from rain, Southern Californians will top off the year with more chilly, icy and wet winter weather through New Year’s Eve, the National Weather Service said. A storm is slated to arrive in the region Monday afternoon, followed by a second storm Tuesday night that could linger into Friday morning. Significant rain, mountain snow and wind gusts are likely, as are localized flooding, debris flows and additional travel delays. The main front of the first storm is expected to reach Los Angeles County on Monday afternoon and could produce 55 mph wind gusts and up to an inch of rain across the region.

    New York (CNN Business)For Mason Ayer, the frigid winter storm that tore through Texas felt like yet another punch in the gut. Power and water outages made it impossible to operate Kerbey Lane Cafe, the small Austin-based chain of coffee shops where he serves as CEO. All eight locations were closed for at least a couple of days. Ayer estimated that during that time, the company lost about $294,000 in sales, plus another $13,000 in spoiled inventory. And because business interruption insurance typically only kicks in as a result of physical property damage, he's not expecting insurance to cover those lost sales."This storm hits, and it's the last thing in the world our industry needed," he said. "But it seems fitting, given everything else that's happened over the course of the last year." Kerbey Lane Cafe locations were closed during the storm.Restaurant operators in Texas were just starting to feel like things were turning around before the storm hit on. Covid cases had started to fall, millions of Texans had received at least one dose of the vaccine and...
