The Mayan Calendar stops at 2012 and the apocalypse folks are mentioning it over and over again as a big deal.
I, of course, was unconcerned. Until I read this. Apparently, scientists are saying we could have some pretty major solar storms in 2012 that could totally collapse our electric grid.
Looks like we will be buying that home generator and survival kits after all. YIKES!
