Solar Storms This Week?

Just looked at the Spaceweather site ( and it's not encouraging, to say the least. We could have some CMEs (coronal mass ejections) yet this week in the X-class range. Already had some minor hits and expect them to affect our weather here on Earth.

If we do get a direct hit from a major X-class flare, there could be some electrical system problems, not to mention cellphone, satellite, etc. I've already had problems with my radio, noticeable interference in reception.

Otherwise, just enjoy the beautiful fall weather.

Now, where did I leave the boat....
