Ruh roh.......
It's coming, kitties.

Biggest solar flares since 2006 are gonna hit tomorrow. Batten down the hatches.

Sun fires off 2 huge solar flares, could impact weather on Earth...... And more than the weather.

Hard to say.....if the power grid gets messed up, it could cause a lot of havok.
I am gonna risk it, and leave all the crunchers online for the day.

If one wanted to take the safe route, you would shut them all down and pull the plug until the effects have subsided.

A choice one must make. None of us on planet Earth, knows exactly what is going to happen. May be a fart in a windstorm, might be a major event. It will certainly have some impact, but just where and how much? Your guess is as good as anybody's.

I'm gonna put on my tin foil underwear just to be safe. No point taking chances.

I wish I had been awake to take a look outside. It was due at my location between 1:00AM and 5:00AM. I've seen the Aurora several times before here in New Hampshire, and it was beautiful. I really like looking at Celt Tooth's pictures. Very nice!

The chief kittie, as seen in the photo, looks very purposeful to me.
I suspect chief is already planning for a weekend "kittiethon" to make up
for any lost crunching time if the households computer system has to be
shut down due to the solar storm.

Has anyone heard of any effects?

Lots of news stories saying stuff is going to happen, but nothing saying stuff HAS happened?

Maybe the tin foil hats protected everyone? LOL

Well, somethings up, Andy, because the "kitties" have just posted a photo of their
computer room. Do they know something we don't regarding this pending solar storm??

The kitties shouldn't have posted that pic...
Now the price of tinfoil is going to rocket skyward as the market speculators get wind of this demand for it.

Well, as far as the kitties are concerned, silly doggins is a "no-brainer" so
doesn't need any head protection!
