85) More than 40,000 immigration hearings have been canceled because of the partial government shutdown, according to Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, which tracks immigration court data.
83) Delta CEO Ed Bastion said the shutdown has cost his company $25 million because of a drop in the flights from government workers and contractors, and that it has delayed certification of new aircraft, according to CNBC.
82) While officials say food stamps will be paid through February, they also will have to pay February benefits early -- by Jan. 20 -- which is creating logistical and communications difficulties as they try to get $4.8 billion in payments out to people who need them but don't know about the change, according to Politico.
81) Unemployment claims by furloughed federal workers skyrocketed more than 400% in the last week of December. Furloughed workers and many contractors are eligible for state unemployment, but those deemed essential and called back to work without pay are not.
78) A security checkpoint inside the George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston closed on Sunday and remained closed Monday morning due to "staffing issues associated with the partial shutdown of the federal government."
77) In addition to sanitation problems (see below), National Park officials said people had destroyed Joshua trees at Joshua Tree National Park. Some reports suggested this was apparently done by off-roaders to make room for their vehicles.
69) Taxicab and ride-sharing drivers in Washington reported less-than-average ridership as a result of there being fewer federal employees and tourists in the city during the shutdown, according to the Washington City Paper.
68) "US mass transit systems have temporarily lost financial aid that supports a wide range of needs, from daily maintenance and service to ongoing repair and expansion projects," according to a report from the credit ratings agency Moody's.
63) The Pentagon isn't affected, but defense contractors who do business with multiple agencies are. Executives for two contractors told Defense One the shutdown is costing them $10 million per week in payroll for workers who have been idled. And the government is tens of millions behind in payments.
52) Universities are claiming that the shutdown is affecting families' ability to verify their income through the IRS, making it harder for them to secure federal student loans, The Washington Post reported. The IRS denies the claims, according to the Post.
42) Not spending money actually costs the government money in interest, the ultimate back pay it will give without getting work in exchange, uncollected fees and more, according to The New York Times.
37) DC businesses are giving federal employees discounts. There are free bagels from a bakery across from the closed National Zoo, and bottomless mimosas and bloody marys for $15 every day at a restaurant. Shutdown-themed drinks are being served at Capitol Hill bars.
31) Farmers who would normally be looking to a Jan. 11 monthly report on the supply and demand of agricultural products to help determine what to plant next season will have to wait if the US Department of Agriculture remains closed.
30) The owner of a small IT company in North Carolina can't close on a Small Business Administration loan that's already been approved for a new commercial property. He could lose the property along with the money he's sunk into appraisals and fees, according to The Washington Post.
18) The Department of Housing and Urban Development hasn't been able to renew roughly 1,650 contracts with private building owners who rent units to thousands of low-income tenants who rely on the federal government to help pay their rent.
17) Federal prison workers in Florida's Panhandle were already having to commute 400 miles because of Hurricane Michael. They'll have to keep doing it without paychecks or expense reimbursement for now, according to The New York Times.
