storm, and it is not don storyet. big-time heavy rain and heavy snow across southern california and all that moisture is going to pour across the rockies. it is going to be dumping powder snow across the rockies tomorrow. it's great news for the skiers. not good for the travelers, because take a look at this. blizzard conditions in the upper midwest, a foot to 2 feet of snow. and then the system dives southeast across the great lakes on sunday. look at that ice storm developing across the northeast. this will transition into a nor'easter, and when it does, we could see a lot of snow in the northeast for monday and tuesday. so it's not going to be easy traveling for the next several days. look at all that powder snow in the west through the next several days. and look at those blizzard-like conditions with gusts over 40 miles per hour in places like north and south dakota. then the storm moves towards the east coast. watch out boston and new york. we could be talking about a snowstorm early next week. and of course it wouldn't be thanksgiving without a parade,
and the biggest parade of all marched down the streets of new york city. errol barnett was there. >> reporter: helium was the ally and the winds the enemy this morning as thanksgiving day parades around the country kicked off the holiday season. the country's most watched event was in new york. an estimated 3.5 million people lined the streets to see an astronaut snoopy, spongebob squarepants, and this oversized power ranger crawling barely ten feet above the ground because of high winds. >> it started to fall, and everybody tried to leave it the other way, and it was funny. >> reporter: and despite dozens of handlers and cops trying to keep control, there were some close calls. this nutcracker proved too close to handle. thankfully there were no serious injuries. in philadelphia, which hosts the country's oldest thanksgiving day parade stretching back 100 years, large balloons were grounded because of high winds.
>> we're a little disappointed we won't be seeing the balloons, but still good. >> reporter: in chicago, the windy city was cold but calm, and in houston, more than 250,000 spectators lined the streets where it was a balmy 70 degrees. now macy's, and you see the flagship store behind me, is a major sponsor of not just the parade here in new york city, but one in seattle as well in what's really become a savvy marketing position. because once the thanksgiving parades have ended and tummies have been stuffed, the biggest shopping weekend of the year bookended by black friday and cyber monday awaits.

raises snails.ay s it's a small a large snail farm. >> reporter: in fact, his is the largest snail farm in the country. to be fair, there are only two. how many snails in here? >> right now it's about 50,000. we could probably fit another 50. >> reporter: extraordinary population density. he calls himself a snail wrangler. >> these snails are kind of hyperbole 1998ing. it's actually called estivating when they kind of retract into their shells and hang out on the wall like that. >> reporter: look, that one is moving. >> yeah that. >> hang out. >> reporter: were you a fan of snails growing up? >> i think the business opportunity of raising something in this country that wasn't being raised at the time was appealing. i mean, the best restaurants in the country, there are snails on the menu. until we came around, those snails were coming out of can from asia or europe, which is insane. >> reporter: taylor delivers his fresh snails to some of new york city's finest restaurants, like frenchette.
>> hey, chef, how you? nice to see you. >> reporter: where chef lee hansen uses them to make brouillade, a kind of french scrambled eggs with escargot. escargot is french for. >> they're super flavorable. all the things that taylor feeds them, you know, the herbs, the wild foraging stuff that he gets. >> so these are all wild greens we've picked for them. this is burdock, dandelion, watercress. >> reporter: yes, these snails eat well. >> these are tangerine, golden rods. these are plants you find around long island, given this terroir flavor. >> reporter: for snails, you are what you eat is especially true. >> we've had michelin star restaurants ask us to feed them mint and the snails taste just like mint. >> reporter: some of them are cute. >> yeah, they are. they're good-looking animals. we try to avoid the word "cute"
because they become dinner later. >> reporter: can i hold one? >> sure. he is checking you out. >> reporter: the little dots on the top of their antenna are eyes. >> reporter: and where are their ears? >> no ears. >> reporter: so this one can't hear me say how good-looking it is. >> no, you have to express it in your face. actually, they're hermaphrodites. so all of these snails have male and female sex organs, and any two of them could mate. and a single snail could self-fertilize, go through the whole process and lay eggs all on its own. >> reporter: there is no such thing as a lonely snail. >> no, not in this world. >> reporter: and though these little creatures do move at a snail's pace -- >> they preproduce quickly and they're voracious eaters of they keep eating until it's gone. if they were in a crop of vegetables or in someone's grapes they could do a lot of damage. >> reporter: so a snail jail break is not a joke. >> not a joke. it's a real thing.
we're overseen by a part of the usda that makes sure that doesn't happen. and we've developed a lot of containment protocols to make sure that doesn't half. >> reporter: you did it. and they are uniquely with garlic and butter or in a stew like babbalucci. or with your eggs on sunday morning. bon appetit! >> a lot of people who did not want to cook the thanksgiving meal may quench their appetites a the local food hall. where can you find one of those? faith salie has the answer. >> reporter: once upon a time, americans actually left their houses to shop. but with the rise of online shopping, thousands of brick and mortar retail stores have closed. >> it's being called a retail apocalypse. store after store shutting down. >> reporter: and some developers are hoping to fill that empty
space by filling eager bellies. this is a food hall. >> even if you've been here ten times, you've walked in and you're discovering something different. >> reporter: phil is a consultant with the real estate firm cushman in wakefield. so how is a food hall different than a food court that we'd find in a mall or airport? >> food court was never really designed to give you an experience of any kind. it wasn't designed to make you say wow. in a food hall, all your senses should get activated. lots of variety. lots of artisanality. >> reporter: does that mean fancy? what does it mean? >> it means not corporate. >> reporter: they may not be corporate, but food halls are big business. in 2015, there were just 70 food halls in the u.s. by the end of next year, there will be more than 400.
detroit has a food hall built out of old shipping containers. in anaheim, there is one inside a former citrus packing plant. chicago already has ten food halls with more on the way. >> for us, this wasn't a space filler. this was intended to be a traffic generator. >> reporter: nebraska real estate developer jay nottal. his food hall is part of a complex on the site of a former racetrack. >> and these are great. >> reporter: he turned to new york chef aktar noab to help cure rate the space. omaha's inner rail food hall opened last month. >> the destination here is food. the destination is not to go shopping. people are coming here specific cliff because they want food. they want an experience. >> reporter: nowab scoured omaha, looking for the best food the city had to offer, which is how he found 24-year-old chloe
tran. she was anxious to expand but didn't think she had the money the open a second location of her vietnamese sandwich should. >> brick and mortar shop would cost at least five to ten times more just to get started. >> reporter: vietnam isn't the only far off land whose cuisine is represented. in fact, culinary diversity is part of what makes each food hall unique. sagar serves up himalayan dumplings called momos. he was born in nepal but grew up in nebraska. back then, his neighbors used to complain constantly about the smell of his family's cooking. >> and, you know, fast forward 20 plus years now, i see people lining up to pay for the same foods. >> here you are. >> reporter: this is omaha, and there are dumplings from the himala himalayas. >> isn't that great? now there is a place you can
interact with people you've never met before and try cuisines from around the world. >> reporter: even if all these dishes are instagram worthy, phil says a good food hall should give you something technology can't, a sense of community. >> since the cave people, we ate together. and that's probably not going to change even in an to be honest a little dust it never bothered me.

lot of work, more than many existing homeowners want or can afford to do. but it's a different calculation for foreigners. the woman who bought this house lives in the san francisco area, and she has become a sort of ambassador to this place. now a number of her friends and family are buying here too. we reached some of them by video chat in san francisco. did you all think that you would be homeowners in sicily? >> never. >> reporter: in all, rubia daniels convinced friends and family to buy 13 homes in mussomeli. what was the pitch, rubia? >> good food, good wine, good coffee, good gelato. it wasn't very hard to convince everybody. >> reporter: they explained even with about $3,000 in closing costs and tens of thousands in renovation work, it's still a deal. >> can you imagine? we live in the bay area where buying a home >> reporter: mussomeli is one of
