    We (the Earth) are currently in a cycle of increased solar activity with frequent mass expulsions. These disrupt electrical and communications circuits. If we have a repeat of one event in the 19th century, the whole electrical grid could be knocked out for weeks. Most areas have protections, but they're limited.

    Oh Joe, I just realized you maybe meant "quiet."

        I read where the star Betelgeuse experienced a gigantic expulsion of its guts, and that it's still oscillating. I'd prefer that our sun not do that, it could kill us all, depending on the orientation of the expulsion. Of course, we wouldn't have a lot of notice. Maybe a couple of weeks before the all-consuming fireball takes us all out. Now, there's a pleasant thought for a nice Friday evening, lol.

          If I recall correctly, there was a huge CME (Coronal Mass Ejection) that hit Earth, back on about 1990.
          As that stuff comes in and crosses any conducting wires, it generates unwanted electricity. That overloaded large parts of the North American grid before anybody could pull the plug. Result was a lot of grid damage, power outages and electronics damage. AND, a spike in the birth rate.

          The deal is, I might feel safe and smug with my own little solar powered back up system. But a big CME can cook the guts of my inverter, leaving me with 12VDC to play with.

            Wow, I bet you can't guess which was my worst subject in school. Phil your realization was correct. Not much spell check could do for me there

              Yesterday? Quite a busy day, quick four pickle ball matches, 18 holes of golf, then since I was already sweating mowed the backyard. Nothing quiet here.

                Wow, this thread went south right away! To get back on the subject, Joe, yes, it is quite quiet! Not much activity here for a while, now. Maybe it'll pick up when the weather gets cooler and we all feel more vigorous.

                  Got my dishwasher back on line. I was about ready to call in a professional. As far as carving goes, once I get this new gate built, I'll be able to get to my carving tools. It's also crazy hot here in southern California, and I don't have a place to carve inside the house, either.

                    And we on the Gulf Coasts hope that it stays quiet!

                        Still putting up fences and gates and cutting down trees...., a lot of darn hard work on the mountainside, and dealing with bones that do not want to work that are major complaining. Darn good workout climbing that darn mountain side getting muscles workouts... Plus have to put in a garden, can things, and fix things. I had to repair a gutter trellis system that goes into rain barrels that collapsed of old age,... a few days ago. Now that was the task of getting those boards up that high, and climbing up and down the twelve-foot ladder took tons of creative process and dodging things falling. I missed a step going down the ladder, and did the leg splits on the ladder ( yes I always secure the ladder to the roof or tree or whatever) thank goodness I had both hands on the ladder and hanging there by my arms, should see me howl in pain on that one. but got down ok, .... the good news is today I still walk just a bad limp which is normal anyhow...... smile. Shocked I have not done the splits since I was in my 40s..amazed I did not rip out a bunch of muscles, guess the old body still remembers the good old days when I did a lot of martial arts leg splits.. Anybody else who does this trick would have ended up in ER.. Anyway, it is fixed and should stand for another twenty years...... Am I quiet? nope.

                            Yes, quiet here in LA. Daily thunderstorms most every afternoon, and the grass is growing like crazy - 12 inches or more in two weeks. On the other hand, our flowering plants are loving it.
