"It would not be that hard to bring down the entire region west of the Rockies if you, in fact, had a coordinated attack like this against a number of substations," Wellinghoff said Thursday. "This [shooting] event shows there are people out there capable of such an attack."

I can't believe that's our green and pleasant land, what an amazing shot !

For total eye-candy, you ahve to watch this.

I spotted four UFO's, and by that i mean unidentified flying objects, not necessarily ET.

The first one is at 1:41, top of screen just to the left of middle.

The second is a group of three, at 3:31 on the right-hand side, about middle.

Odd lights aside the footage is just spectacular :

Near Miss: The Solar Superstorm of July 2012

"If it had hit, we would still be picking up the pieces," says Daniel Baker of the University of Colorado.

heh heh - almost. Now have chickens, bees and the veg patches. Two freezers and 12 bottles of sloe gin made last month. That'll get us through a small solar flare I reckon. You can live for a long time on the fat stores I have and 12 bottles of sloe gin....

>booze, spam and canned beans.

Sounds like a party.

Being in earth quake country we always have an emergency supply of food and water for several days.  Seems most people forget about water, but you could go weeks without food and only a couple of days without water.

>>water

That is a good point.  Personally I could live for a long time without food.  Fortunately, I usually have at least a few gallons of bottled distilled water on hand since I use it exclusively in my coffeemaker so I don't have to descale it for mineral buildup.  Plus I keep a supply of water purification tablets on hand if things really get bad. Cheap backup protection those tablets, sealed up in their bottles they last forever.
