Solar storms trip magnetic flip: Sun sloughs magnetic field, leaving a reversed one in its place. They say the Earth may experience a magnetic flip one of these days too.

This weekend Amber and I did more work than I can even remember. It was a beautiful last couple of days, so we went to work outside. We upgraded our main electrical service from 100 Amps to 200 Amps. This will give our house and shop plenty of juice to run on. We collected all the plants from around the house and stored them for the winter. I broke out the new chain-saw and cut up some limbs that had fallen around the house. This will be used to heat the shop this winter. And we accomplished many other odds and ends. We finished just in time because at noon on sunday it started to rain and then the temperature dropped like a rock and it is now 28 degrees here in good old IL. Brrrrr.
