Happy National Popcorn Day

Popcorn and movie, can't beat it, remember the old Jiffy Popcorn. Then along came the microwave and changed everything.....




Today is National Popcorn Day.  And according to a recent survey, 92% of us enjoy popcorn, or at least don't hate it.  Here are the ten most popular popcorn flavors . . .


1.  Classic butter and salt.  31% of people said it's their favorite way to eat popcorn.


2.  White cheddar, 16%.


3.  Caramel corn, also 16%.


4.  Kettle corn, 15%.  Women were 30% more likely to say they liked it than men.


5.  Regular cheddar, 11%.  So if you combine that with white cheddar, it's really 27%.


6.  Garlic, 3%.


7. "Turtle" popcorn.  That's popcorn covered with chocolate, 3%.


8.  Plain.  Only 2% of people said they prefer popcorn with nothing on it.


9.  Red velvet, 1%.  A couple different brands sell a red velvet flavor.  Apparently some people are big fans.


10.  "Zebra" popcorn, 1%.  It's kind of like "turtle" popcorn, but has chocolate AND white chocolate drizzled on top.


(Chester's Flamin' Hot Popcorn didn't make the list, but probably should have.)

It's Going to be a Chilly Winter!

What's the weather going to be like this winter? Well if you're hoping for mild and warm, you may be disappointed in the weather outlook from Al Dutcher, State Climatologist with UNL. Farmers, businessmen and others interested in what we'll see this winter came to Dutcher's presentation at the Columbus Chamber of Commerce on Thursday. 
Al started out his presentation by reviewing how the weather has been so far this fall and winter, and compared it to last year. This year’s La Nina event is much stronger than last year and expected to last longer.
Many people have commented on the recent stretch of dry weather we've been seeing in our region of Nebraska as of late, but Dutcher explained we received almost all of our fall precipitation during the month of October. 
Al said the La Nina pattern will keep dry conditions south of Nebraska, which will continue to expand the  drought in those areas. 
Dutcher says when looking at the La Nina event that we are currently experie…
