    Default Solar storm headed our way? (09/29/2016)

    Read this article which is long on the "run for the hills talk" but pretty light on actual details.

    Anyone have additional info?

    Looks like a G1 class storm, http://spaceweather.com/ nothing to worry over
    Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.

    Yeah, it is seriously blown out of proportion. It is only strong solar wind from a coronal hole.


    Now if it were a strong solar flare then that would be a different story. This is probably what the article was trying to talk about but it did a very poor job of doing so.
    Prepare for the worst, hope for the best

    Was supposed to be bad the first week of March, but not much happened. The last couple of days, though, it has wreaked havoc with TV reception her in Eastern North Carolina. Hasn't effected much of anything else though.
