Braving the weather, the BLS has released the weekly first-time claims numbers. They were off, a bit, on the high side. The “expected” figure: 330,000.

Actual and, of course, “unexpected” number: 339,000. Close enough for government work, anyway.

Blame the weather.

And the recovery keeps rolling along.
