Flare up

17Feb11

Oooh! A major solar flare is on its way from the sun. It may hit us at any minute. Communications and power supply may be affected.

I shall temporarily replace my mobile phone with two tin cans and a piece of string. If you want to call me, my string is the white one.

We already have the means to cope with power supply failure. That happens often enough without solar intervention.

Actually we haven’t seen the sun much recently because it has been foggy. Perhaps the solar flare will change this. Then we might be able to see the promised display of Aurora Borealis.

I don’t know why I’m posting this. When the flare strikes and armageddon arrives, the internet will be the first to go (I read it on the internet).
