I'm sure everybody knows this, but it seems wrong to have so few reports. The corn cycle is definitely up and running in Washington and looks like it will continue. The surface is totally smooth with good overnight freeze above treeline up to at least 9500ft in the Van Trump area. There is a thin upper layer that did release in natural solar slabs in recent days -- I observed these past slides in several spots around 6500-7500ft. So start early, especially if you want that quarter-inch corn that I have been hearing about.
