To protect yourself from sun particles that are screaming towards us at 4 million mph. They should start hitting us Thursday am and end on Friday.

I have to drive to new Jersey tonight (2 am leave time) I am hoping for clear skies for potential Northern lights sightings. I have also dug out my maps and printed a hard copy of directions just in case gps goes down.

I guess if I am traveling 70 mph and the particles are going 4 million mph we will collide at 4,000,070 miles an hour.

My chevy truck has the dealer installed antiparticle coating so I should be safe. ( I am a dealer) I will report on how it works when I (IF) get back Saturday.

In Michigan we have learned 2 important things about solar flares:
1. Flares cause brilliant displays of northern lights.
2. Flares also cause heavy cloud cover, so we never get to see the northern lights.

I didn't think about it, but I did wake up at 4am with a migraine.

Then when the sun did come up, I found out the cats were prepaired.....

A guy came in the shop yesterday and stood all (both) of my brooms on end with the handles pointing up. He said it's all about the planets being aligned. He said it was all over the net.
And just a question. Don't all of you sleep with the foil hats on every night? I know I do.

I told my wife that I let her sleep by the window in case of alien body snatchers. She made me switch sides. The first night I left a small suitcase by the window. She wanted to know what that was all about. I said I was looking forward to some exotic travel.

I have to go now. Nurse Krached says I need to let somebody else use the computer for a while.
