I woke up having a strange dream, but then again, yes all of my dreams are strange. I was flying in a starship (no, not that starship), and I was watching unusual sun activity. I was watching sunspots and solar flares emerge from the sun (or whatever star it was). I also knew that they would cause problems for the planet, whatever planet it was, but believe it was earth.

Now, I know that solar storms come every several years, and that sunspot and other problems have been predicted for this year. Now, for those that are not of the scientific persuasion, sunspots are exactly like they sound like, spots on the sun. Solar flares are when gasses and such escape from the sun, usually burning. Both can cause a lot of electro-magnetic interference causing problems with power, telephones, cell phones, TV, radio, virtually any broadcast signal, including satellite.

Normally, my dreams tend to fade, or not mean anything, normally. I had a sneaking suspicion about this one. Well, I don't know if it will be anything or not, but, if it does, you heard it here first.
