The earth has been under attack from some big time solar flares lately. They’re supposed to screw up satellites, cell phones, and other electronic devices.
Every time a new one is about to hit us, I see all these articles and news stories about how we’re “in for a doozy” and how stuff’s going to break down all over the place.
So far I haven’t seen that happen. One day the compass in my car kept telling me that I was driving north, no matter which way I was headed. Other than that one incident, it’s been business as usual.
