I caught this on TV this morning and thought the first 15 to 20 minutes
was educational enough to be of interest to others. It's from 2010 but
nearly everything in the first 15-20 minutes is as accurate as I've read
anywhere. The remainder of the program is ok, but repetitious and not

That's a good documentary, I've seen it before but watched some of it again. I would judge the possibility of a small to medium event like this occurring as high, even in my remaining lifetime. Such a thing can be prepared for only by the most hardcore of preppers willing to return to a way of life from the 18th century.
Listen to a good song called "Magnetic", sung by Judith Edelman, from her album "Clean Glass Jar". This was the theme from the "Nova" show on the same subject.
link want s to put up the video as on the opening post

Worked fine for me, too. A good video, all the way through to the end. Another similar program, also very informative, is NOVA's "Secrets of the Sun."
I watch the SOLARHAM.com | Solar Cycle 24 | Space Weather and Amateur Radio Website site daily. It is a wealth of information on current conditions of the sun, sunspots, flares, CME's, with all the imagery and data you can possibly dig for.
I have all the equipment to live a 19-18th century life. It will not be easy but with a farm and the old equipment I'm good if I put my back into it.
What I worry about is the raiders and thiefs.
Enough ammo and plenty of BP and arrows for quite a while. Will move in some ex-marine friends in if it comes to that, I shoot better than them, but I trust them all and they are good people. And they love the M1911A and M14. Will have to teach them the Hawken and bow, they learn quick.
A big storm will be SHTF. I can cut wood, draw water from a well, and grow my own. Lets hope it does not happen. I'm more concerned with the Gooberment.
