7:07 am
bringing heavy rain. possibility of snoep into the appalachians depending on the track of this system. here's the impacts we see. snowy, icy travel from lubbock into arkansas and parts of missouri. the carolinas could see a significant snowstorm this weekend with heavy snow from london all the way into charlotte. depending on the track, washington might be in play in this as well. we'll continue to track it, but in the meantime, we've got also a risk of severe thunderstorms down through texas, san antonio, and heavy rain from texas all the way into the mid-atlantic states. guys? >> all right, al. i know you'll keep your eye on that. we're going to turn back to d.c. and savannah. >> much of the business here in washington is being postponed this week as the nation honors president bush. but with a deadline looming, there's word of a possible deal to avoid the next government shutdown. nbc's chief white house correspondent hallie jackson has the latest on that. good morning. >> reporter: hey.
7:08 am
good morning to you. you're right. it looks like lawmakers are buying themselves two more weeks to avoid a partial government shutdown. multiple house leadership sources tell nbc news there is an agreement because of the services to remember president bush to push what was friday's deadline to the friday before christmas. i'm told the president is open to that. the idea being lawmakers might feel pressure to get home for the holidays and might be able to break that stalemate over border wall money. but it's not clear what kind of compromise democrats and republicans will be able to find on that. the president wants $5 billion for his wall. congress has allocated $1.6 billion. democrats are pointing the finger at president trump with chuck schumer saying the government shouldn't close because of what he calls a trump temper tantrum. but mitch mcconnell seems more optimistic telling a "wall street journal" panel overnight he doesn't think it'll get to the point of a shutdown. keep in mind, if it does happen later this month, it is a partial shutdown. but it would affect the department of homeland security and the interior department

which keechs national parks and monuments open. >> but a lot of people might be wondering they remember back to the campaign the president saying mexico is going to pay for this wall. why is it congress is fighting over how much funding, $5 billion the president wants for his wall, if mexico was supposed to pay for it? >> reporter: because mexico is not going to pay for it is the bottom line answer. the president said since the summer mexico will be paying for this ultimately. but that is simply not the case. there's a new mexican president now that's been inaugurated. mexico has repeatedly reiterated it's not ponying up the money for the wall. that's up to the taxpayers to do it for the president. >> hallie jackson at the white house for us, thank you. also this morning, the mystery surrounding the death of a top u.s. admiral overseeing naval forces in the middle east is deepening. kelly cobiella joining us with the latest on that story. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, hoda. navy investigators are now

7:44 am
ready. so, i call the store. i placed an order for drive-up service about eight hours ago. and i never got a notice that the order is ready. jeff rossen. the order is ready? he said, i should have an option to tell them i arrive. i don't have an option to get there. i have to do it as a store pick-up? that's not what i wanted? that's right. the drive-up service didn't work. i'm at target, getting out of my car to pick up my stuff. and it's raining out. i pick up my order the old-fashioned way. target telling nbc news, it strives to deliver exceptional service for our guests and we're always sorry to hear when we come up short. adding, drive up is our highest rated service for our guests. walmart says the service gets rave reviews. adding, the service you received isn't one that we want someone to have, but it's not indicative
7:45 am
of the overall program. in the end, both stores still have kinks. but walmart wins. now, target did get my order right, except for one item they shipped to me. by the way, we tried the drive-up service again at a different target location. it did work that time. it seems hit or miss. bottom line, if you use the service at either store, you might want to leave some extra time. happy holidays. >> they don't add the time you take to pick out all of the stuff. >> you like to touch the produce? >> i like to pick the steak i want. i like that. >> all right. >> i like the app. i use a different one. but sometimes when they don't have the item and they decide to swap it out, it's never the swapout that i want. >> for the staples, it's great. just ahead, president bush's canine companion, their heartwarming bond and what's heartwarming bond and what's
