News report: "A powerful solar eruption is expected to blast a stream of charged particles toward Earth tomorrow (Jan. 24), as the strongest radiation storm since 2005 rages on the sun."

Well, we all* survived 2005, so expect to see the day after tomorrow.

Nevertheless ... where do you plan to be on December 21, 2012 when the Mayan calendar expires?

*I'm not worried.* The roof of my pilothouse is made of thick steel, and I'm planning on being there tomorrow.* Surviving that, I'll be able to move to the PNW when Spanish-speaking*folks vote to have California be annexed by Mexico.

You might want to put some 1" sheet lead over the top of the pilothouse just to be safe, though.* That might help keep your electronics from getting fried by EMP.

RE: Duck and cover

Just one more example of the effect of "global warming" on the planet. What is it going to take to wake up the "global warming" deniers? Perhaps another speech on that subject by the foremost climatologist in the world, Al Gore.
