Fire in the Sky...

OK, here's a little tidbit of information that most of you will choose ignore. Your choice, but I am driven to try and help people. I've been that way since I was big enough walk.

Those of you that have sat through my 8-hr Disaster Preparedness Seminar heard me tell you about the Carrington Event of 1859. That was when a massive CME struck earth and wreaked havoc with telegraph and electrical systems. NASA and professional astronomers have calculated that the next CME of that size or larger should happen in 2025. 

Well, it appears that either they have miscalculated or nature is not cooperating. They are now saying that it is more likely to occur in early 2024. It's already April so I guess it won't be THAT early in 2024. However, I do very much believe that it will happen at some point in the pretty near future.

Some folks will probably read this with some modicum of interest but when it comes to actually making any preparations for it, I'm not sure how many will put forth the effort. Again, your choice.

If/when this event happens, there is a strong possibility that many, if not all, electronic devices and components will be heavily damaged and cease to function. Potentially, this could mean that cars, airplanes, trains, computers, power plants, generators, cell phones, radios, microwaves, most flashlights, clocks, most wristwatches,... you get the idea. Not at all a good time to be traveling! 

 Since a phenomenon of this magnitude cannot be duplicated in a laboratory environment, we really don't know to what extent it will affect our lives. It could range from a minor inconvenience to putting us back in the 18th century and I'll also tell you this... if that happens, the effects could last literally for years. 

So, here's the deal, for whatever percentage of you that are still reading this...

You cannot save everything, and you cannot stop living your lives, but there is a lot you can do. You should already have 3 months to a year's worth of food put away. You should also have a fair amount of water and the means to obtain and purify more. 

You should have the means to defend yourself and your family. I promise you that there will be many, many people that will do absolutely nothing to prepare and they're going get hungry fast.

You will need medical supplies and the knowledge to use them.

And communication. You had better have a reliable means to communicate with family and friends and listen for reports from others. Being in a complete, communication black-out scares the ever-loving hell out of me. If you took my class, I told you a couple of ways to make Faraday protection containers. If you have not yet done that, I suggest you get off your Biden and get it done!

There are other potential calamities at our doorstep. Serious ones. If you dont believe that, and if you're not making some kind of plans to get you and your family through it, you are in for a very, very rude and possibly deadly awakening.

This video is one many that might help explain what I'm talking about.


And here's another one...
