    I think this is the same level as the one that happened about a month ago... Nothing noticible happened then, but I will still unplug the computers and such before going to bed tonight ;)

    I noticed we got a pretty nice day out of the deal. Takes that much gamma radiation to burn off Northwest clouds I guess.

    My outside motion security lights did not come on when i took the trash out this morning like they should have, but when I backed my truck out of the grage it trigger them, I will have to try them a few times to see if the sensors were affected some how.

    At about 4am my phone was unable to get any cell reception at a place that I normally have 3-4 bars.

    It didnt last long, but I was a bit concerned until I remembered the about the storm.
