You know the ones, they go to work everyday...to 'provide for their family' and 'pay bills'. Yeah, them. The ones that take 20+ mile commutes, just to make minimum wage...while sitting in traffic, burning their money. You know who i'm talking about? The ones that call happy meals...dinner. Come on, you know??? You're probably one of them. hahahahha
Oil makes the world...or, the people in the world...go 'round.
Let me break it down
No oil = no gas = no car = no job = no income = no rent money = homeless
So, exactly what are your backup plans? IF the weather continues with this crazy amount of snow...and Egypt falls apart....your ass is gonna either A) freeze inside your home (if you can make your mortgage payment) or B) freeze outside your home (because you didn't make your payment, on time)
Oh, you think the bankers care if you can't make your payments...because of the snow? hahahahahah Not their problem, ladies and gentleman, IT'S YOURS!
Better learn how to ride a bike; and stop thinking your ass is cool cuz you got 20 inch rims!

Closing the Canal could be viewed as an Act of War by any country in the world. It is part of the Treaty that governs it. It must remain open in times of war or peace by any vessel regardless of flag.
If Egypt closes it, they can expect a reaction.

I would like to know what would have to happen for the canal to close.
How close is it to doing so right now.
