Has anyone done anything to get ready for a "Solar Flare Up" that may damage the electrical grid on planet earth for anywhere from 3 months to 10 years? The prediction is for late December of 2012. Food, water, protection and a wide variety of essentials will be needed if this comes to pass. I don't want to scare anyone but I would like for everyone to look at what has been said and prepare if they think it is to their best interest. I would like to know ya'll idea's on this subject and what your plans might be.
I think to have alot of the essentials for this type of event, we need not spend money on things that won't help us if this is a hoax or what ever. A person could buy alot of dry goods and non-parishables. You know can goods, rice, beans, pasta anything you eat already but just stock up a little more. You could buy next summers seeds this fall, so if something does happen, you will be prepared. There is alot of things like this I think we can all do that won't brake the budget but that will prepare us for a big problem. We just need to be real about it and know the earth has had some problems in the past.

Not to get political, but both Romney and Barry O are anti-gun,, now is the time to buy and stock up on parts, ammo and magazines.
As for firearms owners I guess we will have to vote for the lesser of the two evils.
The people that live in areas aflicted by hurricanes may have an advantage because they may have gone through times without electricity before. They would have practice in stock pileing supplies, such as water, food, gas, medicines and batteries for flashlights and radios. We also keep a large supply of lamp oil. I think a person can get a few things ready without going into financial trouble. A person could buy non parishable foods, lets say, but the kind they like and eat anyway. That way if this passes and nothing happens, you could still eat the food.
That is actually how we supply for hurricanes. I do the buy 1 get 1 sales on things we actually would eat anyway. One goes in the cupboard, 1 goes in a cooler that just stores canned food for the season. At the end of hurricane season, those go in the cupboard. First things first if a storm hits. If we are going to be without electric for three or more days....Cook the perishables in the freezer using the grill. Use available Ice to store and those are the first items on the menu, then canned goods
so, this may sound like a silly question but will places like Hoover dam still produce electricity?
Yes! Coal fired plants as well. These places all have contingency plans.
