Solar Storms, we are due
According to a recent article in Mainstream news, we are due for a major solar event that could potentially knock out our power grid or at least do some damage.
It has been about 150 years since we had a major storm and of course didn’t have anywhere near the level of technology that exists today and virtually all of it at risk to a major solar event. The scientist say that on average one of these major events occur once every 100 hundred years and thus we can expect such an event to occur anytime.
Of course it doesn’t really work like that. We could have 3 back to back in a period of 2 or 3 years. Mother nature really doesn’t pay attention to our math. Having said that we need to think about the consequences that we could have, considering we are at the peak in solar activity right now and will be for the next year or so, just in case something does occur and catch us totally unprepared. It certainly couldn’t hurt now could it? Well except for a little bit of money, that if spent wisely could help you weather that storm!
