We are within easy walking distance of a large river, so that is something we are glad about.

From what I have been reading, it just seems to be a regular solar cycle that happens every hundred years or so. Astronomers (and those who watch the auroras) will have plenty of excitement, but Mother Earth will protect us from any radiation from the Sun.
If we were as close as Mercury is, it would be a different story. Being 93 million miles away has its advantages.

It does that every few hundred thousand years, and it is something to be concerned about if it happens during the solar activities. However, they are not sure when it will happen but usually give 1000 or so years from now.
It is the doomsayer stuff on the History Channel that makes people think the worst is going to happen in 2012. They do it for ratings, but they do misinform the public on the subject of the magnetic field and what is exactly happening.
The reality is the magnetic field will gain all of its strength back after the switch. It will also be strong during the switch, but not as strong as it is after the fact. It will still be strong enough to protect the life on Earth, but cell phones and other electronic gadgets will not be so lucky.

Not sure if this is legitimate, but I believe t he NASA part is, not sure on the rest though, but it was done nicely. It is on You Tube, sorry did not get the URL.
