I thought about the preppers that are thinking a massive solar hit will change the way we live. bet they are a tad disappointed :lol:

all seems fine here. I don't think it was powerful enough to do tons of damage like in 1859

I've been a subscriber for about a year and really like getting the information in near-real time.
Well Bless Your Heart do you realize that the rest of the posts were made before 3/8/12 and the flare in question was in 2010? I must admit you had me going for a while. PS most of us survied the flare. Sorry I am so rude.

<shrug> I don't mind rudeness (though, if you really were "sorry" about it you wouldn't have hit the "submit" button, so typing "sorry I'm so rude" is oxymoronic).
I just don't see a need to start a new thread when one already exists.
Now, about those solar flares...

About WHAT SOLAR flares exactly? That was the point of my comment. At the peak of the cycle [right about now] flares happen, several in any given day. During the 'quiet' period they happen about once a week. So what was your post about? You were right in your PC way I started the post angry about you calling 'Wolf' then I cooled down a bit and said I was sorry and then I submitted it so others were not taken in like I was.~gd

I was just being silly - My grampa used to tell me that he liked to argue. He said if he couldn't find someone to argue with he'd just argue with a fence post... :lol: He was a wonderful man - smarter than a whip and didn't mind sharing it with anyone who'd listen and some who wouldn't, lol!
