NOAA ISSUES SPACE WEATHER WARNING;
POWERFUL SOLAR FLARE ERUPTS;
KATRINA COMMUNICATIONS MAY HAVE BEEN AFFECTED
Sept. 7, 2005 Forecasters at the NOAA Space Environment Center in Boulder, Colo., Wednesday observed one of the largest solar flares on record at 1:40 p.m. EDT. The forecasters are predicting significant solar eruptions in the coming days. Agencies impacted by space weather storms may experience disruptions over the next two weeks. These include spacecraft operations, electric power systems, high frequency communications and low-frequency navigation systems.
Haven't yet seen this as an excuse for the continuing mayhem at BoshCo, but am sure it's only a matter of time.
Perhaps it's time to check whether the Rapture is upon us....
Not quite yet. Though Satanism and Liberalism are at historic lows, Wild Weather now ranks up there with Apostasy.
Good evening, folks. Did the Motor Vehicles scene today -- not as bad as I remember, though now have the worst DL picture ever ever taken of me. I may scan it in later and we can mustache and goatee it together.
But it made me remember an encounter from the last time (I may have told this story before. Am getting forgetful.)
Gorgeous, tall, Southern-drawling woman in line ahead of me answers the usual questions. Examiner peers at her after they do the weight, color of eyes thing.
"So what color hair is that?" he asks (it's kinda streaky).
"Yaller," she replies.
"My dear," the agent says. "There is no such hair color as 'yaller.'"
