Rice Shortage

I heard on the news twice yesterday that we are in the midst of a rice shortage. Lin told me last week Costco was sold out. We gave her one of our extra bags. If there is indeed a rice shortage going on, this is a bad, bad thing for our family. We eat Persian food several times a week. Rice is essential to the Persian diet. Naseem will be very upset if she can't have her rice & tahdig at least twice a week.

Here is a short article from The Seattle Times newspaper. http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/localnews/2004367150_riceshortage23m.html It appears that the everyday consumer will have to battle it out at Costco with restaurant owners for bags of rice.
