Stormy Monday.......
« on: October 12, 2021, 0007 UTC »
Per the New York Post:

Get ready, Earthlings, the sun is expected to wreak some havoc on our planet Monday with an enormous solar flare that could disrupt power grids, affect spacecraft and make the northern lights visible in New York.

I just want these T-storms to hurry up and get outta' here. Testing out a repaired Windom and hearing like S+20/9 of lightning crashes just sucks. That, and I don't want lightning to QSL me, since ya know what happens when it really does. Now, if we can just clear all these storms out just in time to DX the Halloween pirates on MW and SW this weekend. BTW, might be a good time to cruise around any empty spots in the FM band as well. Ya never know...
When asked about White Supremacy, I do not believe in it, since most white people that I know are very much mediocre. Therefore, I believe in White Mediocracy.
