First . . . a sign

Per A NIGHT TO REMEMBER: A coronal mass ejection (CME) hit Earth's magnetic field around noon Universal Time on Sept. 26th. The impact set the stage for a night to remember. As soon as darkness fell over Scandinavia, auroras filled the sky with such intensity that they were visible through rain clouds. Fredrik Broms photographed the scene from Kvaløya, Norway:
Maybe if you squint hard enough, the violent space weather will be visible in the upper Midwest.

Don't let it fool you . . .

I was a slooooooooooooow year in South central Kansas.  I find it amazing to look at the tornados in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and North Dakota this year.
