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, they also posted this one too, Ms....they're so worried about this storm
they also got "Bully-dog", next door, to wrap-up too.

LOL...silly doggins. He's got his tinfoil on all wrong...not protecting the ol' noggin.


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

I think the kitties are snickering at the joke they played on Bowser.


By the looks of things I guess they are....
