    but it was interesting to watch the night the cob pile in Panola burned.  The little shed next to the cob pile had several aceylene and oxygen tanks stored in it for an O-A welding rig.  They had pressure relief valves that vented and Booommmmm.  Up through the roof they would go.

    Of course by then, they had pulled back a couple of blocks and decided to let it burn.  They just watched them fly through the air.
