    Break out the raybans and sunblock and fire up the generator.

    Dunno - it hasn't brought down communications, television signals or caused wide spread electrical outages. So far, it's transparent to most everyone I'd suspect....
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Somehow I suspect we'll be ok. No reason to go all alarmist on us.

    I'm hoping to see the northern lights from this.

    what's the best time to look for northern lights?

    i might be too far south, but maybe not.

    All the way from Churchill Downs? That would be a serious light-show.

    They said we could probably see them last Saturday night, but it was cloudy so I was out of luck.

    I know that my smart phone, and home internet connection were a little slow yesterday, and today....It may be the solar storm, or maybe I should just pay the bills.....

    Fox news said a military GPS satelite might be at risk.

    I believe these solar flares are suppose to be going on for quite awhile.
