It seems like we, as a whole, here in the United States, have just had about all kinds of disasters and bad weather thrown at us , from one end of the country to the other. Out west, California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Montana are being devastated by forest fires. Yellowstone is heating up so much that parts of the highway near there are literally melting, and both Wyoming and Idaho are having earthquake swarms. Idaho has a volcanic caldera that is even larger than the Yellowstone caldera, and it appears that the two might be merging underground; making the threats of an eruption there even greater than they already were. The central states have had their share of fires and tornadoes also, although not as bad as some of the ones a few years ago. Then , we have monster hurricanes coming in that may be some of the worst on record, with terrible flooding and loss of lives. Just when it seems it can't get any worse, now we have an earth-facing solar flare coming at us. It could turn into an X-flare; but they think it will most likely be an M-flare, which is not as bad. However, this could still affect the power grid, and cause loss of electricity, and malfunctions of computers. Almost everything we have nowdays is run by computers, and/or controlled by electricity. Loss of power means mass catastrophe, wherever the grid goes down. So........ I am sitting here thinking of all of those predictions that disaster would follow after the solar eclipse, and this month is supposed to be the "doomsday month"; and I am sure hoping that all of those predictions will be wrong.
