contest sorts itself out it's looking more and more like the potential for a protracted primary between trump as the anti-establishment pick, someone like cruz who carries conservatives and religious voters, then the establishment candidate who republicans have historically nominated, whoever that may be this cycle. >> all right, julianna goldman in washington. weather extremes across the country tonight. this picture from western oklahoma a definition of whiteout conditions. this one from new york was experiencing record high temperatures. let's bring in chief meteorologist eric fisher. we're going to start in the northwest which is getting slammed by storms. what is happening with that system? >> jeff this storm has a lot more cold air to work with. we're seeing more snow all across the intermountain west over the next 48 hours and eventually that energy spins out into the plains. as we head into tuesday and wednesday, snow moving up into nebraska, parts of south dakota. all told every state in the west picking up much-needed snowfall here. every state all the way until the plains picking up fresh snow

it's hard. >> reporter: 30 yards from the flackas home the landslide has pushed into a barn owned by her family. >> this is the only thing holding the hillside up. >> reporter: cotchery's relatives live alongside the barn in this home. they're now staying in a horse trailer because the home is in danger of being condemned. cotchery, whose house is safe so far, says sandbags have been their best and only option. >> got to do something. >> reporter: bob is willing to try anything if it means staying in the home he and his wife call paradise. >> if it starts to move i'm not going to be stubborn and stay, i will get the hell out. until it starts to move, i'm staying. >> reporter: the hole in front of bob's house is 100 feet long and 50 feet wide. tomorrow he'll find out if his home is condemned. jeff, his insurance company told him this week they will not pay for the damage. >> david begnaud in oregon.

>> if this happens who wins, who loses? >> finally good news for savers who have gotten 0% interest on their checking, savings, cds. borrowers could pay a little bit more for all kinds of loans whether credit cards, auto mortgage rates are not tied to these rates but they could go up as well. investors could be murky out there. i think stock and bond prices could be quite volatile the net few weeks. >> the global economy is slowing down, there's concern the american economy is going to slow down, some economists think this is too early? >> people like larry summers, the former treasury secretary, they even cite the fact that crude oil, which fell by 11% to seven-year lows, that that's a sign of the slow-down. janet yellen the fed chair says, don't worry about. things slow down, we don't have to keep raising rates. if things speed and up we get inflation, we could raise rates by more than .25% and more often. everything is data-dependent, we'll have to see.
