Does this mean ground up corncobs or are we talking about popping corn and heating all in one fell swoop? I know that you would not make light of a serious situation. We've had neighbors who worked for Boeing in Everette so we have heard horror stories about the weather. They have said that it doesn't really rain, but at the same time things are always very wet and the sun only shines for something like two days a year. Of course, they were probably exaggerating a bit. I bet that the sun shines for at least five each year.
