Yowbarb I had trouble posting this AM doing a whole system scan on my own computer. I am very careful about links, etc.l but it acted like it had a problem on someone else's computer. Here we have had trouble with TV sound blipping off, less cell reception etc. Not sure if related to a geomagnetic storm. Supposedly it is not that geo-effective.
What I tried to post previously today:
...On the bottom of the TV screen, while watching The Weather Channel for a minute, I saw a banner about a solar flare.
When I went to the Spaceweather site it was only a C9 - so maybe it was about yesterday's X Flare. X1 I think.
Spaceweather Update -
THE SECOND CME HAS ARRIVED: For the second time today, a CME has hit Earth's magnetic field. The first strike, described below, was relatively minor. The second impact, which occurred at approximately 1600 UT, could be more potent CME #2 was propelled toward Earth by a powerful X-class solar flare on Sept. 10th. It could spark strong geomagnetic storms extending from Earth's poles to mid-latitudes. Stay tuned for updates about this developing story--and be alert for auroras!
SOLAR STORM UPDATE: The first of two CMEs expected to hit Earth's magnetic field on Sept. 12th arrived on schedule. Although the geomagnetic storm it provoked was technically only minor (G1-class), Northern Lights were observed as far south as Arizona. Chris Schur photographed the red glow of auroras peaking over the trees in the backyard of his home in Payson, AZ:

Yowbarb Note: An X flare just happened...
...NOAA forecasters estimate a 79% (not a typo: 79%) chance of polar geomagnetic storming on Sept. 12th

Hurricane Norbert Weakens off Mexico's Baja Coast
ABC News - 2 hours ago
A weakening Hurricane Norbert moved parallel to Mexico's Baja California peninsula early Sunday after pounding fishing villages and resorts, damaging more than 1,000 homes and forcing hundreds to fleet to higher ground.
Norbert grew to Category 3 status Saturday, but by Sunday morning it had weakened to a Category 1 hurricane with winds of up to 75 mph (120 kph). Though staying away from land, it passed near enough to the coast to drench fishing villages and resorts, and pound beaches.
High surf and waves broke a contention wall and flooded the fishing village of Puerto San Carlos, said Venustiano Perez, mayor of the municipality of Comondu, which encompasses the village and is located about 300 miles (500 kilometers) north of the tip of the peninsula.
The state government reported that 500 people there had gone to shelters and health officials were taking steps to fight mosquitoes in stagnant water to prevent the spread of dengue
At least 2,000 people had been evacuated from Los Cabos, La Paz and Comondu, said the state government's civil protection director Carlos Rincon.
The hurricane also was causing high surf along the beaches of Southern California and contributing to rainstorms across the Southwest.
Earlier, the storm toppled trees and knocked out electricity in parts of Los Cabos. Firefighters rescued several people from vehicles stranded in flooded streets, said Wenceslao Pettit, public safety director in Cabo San Lucas.
Ports in the area popular with U.S. tourists remained closed to navigation and police officers were sent to the evacuated neighborhoods to prevent looting, Pettit added.
The U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said Sunday morning that Norbert was centered about 165 miles (265 kilometers) west northwest of Punta Eugenia, Mexico and was heading west-northwest at 9 mph (15 kph).

Destiny comes to those who listen, and fate finds the rest.
So learn what you can learn, do what you can do, and never give up hope!
