From The EastWing, Lightning All The Way, A Smoke Blizzard In The EastWing, A Sun Storm Came By, Never Say The “W” Word, Facts To Support The Capital P

Greeting to all and welcome new friends to the EastWing.

 

It seems that I was not the only one to have experienced issues with lightening messing up everything from telephone to toasters to TV to whole house everything electrical that was plugged into the grid. So in that respect I’m lucky to have escaped with the minor amount of EastWing damage that did occur.

 

We also heard from friends who related stories about when the lightening walked about way back in the day. It was equally devastating then, just less electrical stuff to blow up or burn out. Any way any time anywhere, the power of nature is a site to behold.

 

Did you know that this past Saturday Night we were almost overwhelmed in the worst storm in the last twenty five years?  Oh, you didn’t see that storm. Well you didn’t actually get to see this one. It’s not like rain or snow. Or for that matter not even like blowing sand. Yet it’s blowing at a speed far, far faster than any storm which has blown thru the EastWing.

 

Even faster than that winter night, with a raging blizzard going on outside, when the She burned something in the oven and the whole house filled with dense smoke. The only way to clear the house was I opened the upstairs bedroom windows, then opened the east door of the EastWing.  The wind blew so strong thru the house it pulled out all the smoke. That wind cleared all the smoke in less than 5 minutes. Not only was that blizzard driven wind clearing the smoke from the She’s kitchen, it was also pulling the snow thru the whole house.

 

The way I was able to determine that all the smoke had been blown from the house was when the air was only filled with snow and no smoke. Yeah, even faster than that kinda storm.

 

Now while we are accustom to getting our storms coming at us from the west, or even the southwest, this one came a different direction.  The sun, yes the sun, the fastest blowing storm ever came not from the cold north, but directly from the sun. As a matter of fact, the sun last week produced two major storms, and the energy from  both storms is headed toward
Earth.

 

Experts say the combined energy from two recent solar events has arrived, prompting the Space Weather Prediction Center to issue a strong geomagnetic storm watch for Saturday.

  1.  What’s a solar storm? Basically, the sun is a giant ball of gas: 92.1% hydrogen and 7.8% helium. Every now and then, it spits out a giant burst of gas that contains magnetic properties called a coronal mass ejection.

These ejections are sometimes associated with solar flares, the most explosive events in the solar system. The sun has released two ejections in the past few days, and both are linked to solar flares.NASA says the second flare is an X1.6 class, putting it in the most intense category.

The energy from those two ejections is now hitting Earth. Space weather experts aren’t sure what this solar storm will do.

 

So I guess it’s kinda a wait and see type storm. We’ll see. Or maybe we won’t see. These type storms do have the ability to shut down all electronic communications on this planet. That would be a bummer ‘cause people would have to start talking face to face. I suppose for some of those who insist on TEXTING two people at a time, you’d just have to go back being two faced. Just saying.

 

Being its late Sunday Evening at the EastWing and the cell phone, wireless in-house phone system, blue tooth, iPad, Lap Top Computer, Wi-Fi, Satellite TV, and satellite internet connection, radios AM & FM,  all still working, guess it’s safe to say that once again we’ve dodged a bullet from space.

 

Last week when I talked about the Obama Administration proposing to replace chocolate in s’mores with fruit, I got a real nasty email from a lady in New Jersey taking me to task for making up such a story. That email arrived late last Monday Evening. Last Friday I got the apology email from the same lady informing me that she had just read the same thing in print in her local paper and felt she owed me an apology for offending me.  She did not offend me. Truth is truth and no believing truth is never offensive, disappointment maybe, sad maybe, but never offending.

 

Today ISIS beheads the third man in the sand  and grabs world headlines. Guess our guy saw the video then hit the links. After all its Sunday and you can’t expect him to work on Sunday. He’s union ya know, they don’t work overtime without double pay for Sunday.

 

Did you catch President Obama’s speech last week when he said he will bomb both ISIS and Syria ‘cause it’s the right thing to do. Not going to fight anyone, just bomb and go home. We will train the group in Syria who is just a little bit better than ISIS to fight ISIS for us. YEAH  RIGHT! And we all know how this is going to play out.

 

While the  world watches  ISIS the domestic  world at home goes to pot with a capital P and that stands for Poverty. Some interesting fact I ran across the other day.

 

Since Obama became president over 11 million working age Americans have left the workforce.

Twenty percent of  U.S. families don’t have a single member who is employed.

Under Obama the food stamp rolls have grown 75 times faster than jobs created.

33.3% of Americans are now on welfare.

U.S. jobs pay 23% less now than in 2008. $47,000 vs. $61,000  that’s $93 Billion in lost wages.

For the first time in the history of this nation, more small businesses fail each day than startup.

 

And this nation voted for hope and change. Twice.  Then sure enough it changed, just like the man said it would.

 

Stay safe in Afghanistan.
