Just telling it like it is Betsy...although I am extremely concerned that you are wasting your life away worrying about something that is never going to happen...this has to be affecting you not only mentally but physically....don't you know stress kills.

Here’s why this is a big deal.

If you’ve noticed, I frequently talk about solar flares being an event that has the ability to cause widespread disruptions in the grid, the supply chain, and in civil order. Unlike EMPs that dispense their energy for a few seconds over a limited area, a large solar flare would be like a series of EMPs going off for hours or even days over most or all of the Earth. The result would be that electronics that aren’t shielded, and even some that are improperly shielded, would get fried.
In the event of an EMP or a class M (and possibly X) solar flare, we would lose our electrical grid, electronics including vehicles and advanced medical devices, refrigeration, and pumps for fuel, water, and sewage.


Is this something to fear? No. That won’t do ANY good. But it is an event that should stress the importance of getting prepared for breakdowns in the grid, social services, and civil order…NOW.




Read on.......Surviving Solar Flares. | SecretsOfUrbanSurvival.com
Hello Betsey...I'll stick with you girrl...last night...or I should say early this morning (2:00am), my Cable...my telephone..and my computer ...all three were dead...as in d-e-a-d. I couldn't even call COMCAST (which have all three of my services with them) to ask what happened...no way to communicate. So, this morning, when I woke up, I asked my mother to use her cell phone, and I called COMCAST to inquire...it wasn't only me...but 1000's of people in our surounding area...as well as 100's of 1000's elsewhere had all of their "services" knocked out as well..and they just now, 5 minutes ago came back on line.....and it is still seeming to go in and out.

I sat here very thankful to not have had our electric power go out as well, because many lost that too...and the heat here in Florida is hell!!...and my mother is not well...I kept thinking how blessed we were to not have had an emergency that I needed to make a phone call...if we hadn't had my mother's cell phone as well...it's real...very, very real...what can happen due to these solar flares...I just had a tiny taste of how paralyzing it can be if it were to be any bigger than it was....and who knows...it could just be a warning for something much, much worse.

Thank you Betsey...Denise...I pay attention to your posts...and I take heed in your thoughtful warnings to us...so while we can enjoy these priveledges now...and here, in this form of media...we should appreciate them..as I do with all of my heart....we can prepare or not...it is an important choice as it affects our very lives and exhistance...we aren't going anywhere fast...and we are going to face some of the most critical obstructions in our way of life in these last days....we've not even begun to feel the scratch on the very surface of the full extent of it all...I do believe.

I'm thinking that a land line is no longer good...a cell phone maybe is better...but even they are not immune from the solar flare...are they...?...then what...?...purchase a horse...and ride until the sun don't shine...or not, if you cannot afford a horse..then you just stand still and wait...for what...?...very, very troubling...

God Bless you Denise...I love you dearly...keep it coming in Jesus name.

Love,
Verna.

Never mind the fact that cable companies often make changes to their networks in the wee hours of the morning so as to disrupt as few customers as possible.

Good grief,

...never mind the reason COMCAST gave as to why so many 1000's of people lost power to their electronics when I SPOKE WITH THEM THIS MORNING.

Hey sis, how are you today? You should have called me last night, you know I'm up late!! Never mind the naysayer....they will, well, be naysayers, know what I mean? I am doing as the good Lord have prompted me to do and don't need the approval of anyone BUT HIM. You never know, some of the very ones may need a helping hand....

To the naysayer: learn from the ants.

...O woulda called you last night Denise...but the solar flare took out my phone......and my puter......and my cable............the house was humming!...!!!...so I took out my paint and brushes and painted a gift for my mothers Birthday...a beautiful purple and white rose...with her name in gold...she'll love it.

And you know...I was in deep thought as I painted...in all the quiteness throughout the night into the morning hours, about the days to come...and how I understand that the LORD is preparing us. I know he's raising me up mentally and spiritually to learn to depend on the very minimum of everything...to only those things that are crucial for sustaining life..all the other stuff seems to matter less and less everyday...it's actually a very comforting place to be...to know you do not need a thing that God does not provide. The only "things" that matter are eternal things...I'll be left with ALL! that matters!......Him.

Love you!
Verna.

Feb. 26, 2011 six months since the last post on this thread. Nothing's change? Still don't see a reason to "put back" something for a rainy day? For that storm that's surely on the horizon? No? May God open your spiritual 'eyes and ears' before too long.
