I live in AZ so besides the "bubla" or whatever that stupid name is for a huge wall of dust we get thats crazy huge is about as bad as our weather gets. Basically Solar Flairs are the biggest threat to me and my dog, so its my the natural disaster of choice when thinking about different apocalyptic scenarios.

I was just reading the article in SA about fukushima and if a similar situation could ever arise in the US; Seems like all their backup plans and pretty much the safety of anyone near a Nuclear Power Plant (Like me and Palo Verde) goes out the window if a major solar flair hits the earth and knocks out all the electronics. Please tell me im ill-informed.
