I see most people looking at major catastrophes that could happen. You need to be aware that there are many smaller things that can happen that
effect our lives also. This charge, similar to the charge that lights HP or fluorescent light bulbs during thunderstorms, can cause various problems
with appliances and electronics in the home. A good whole house protector on the fuse box can help some line problems, sending the voltage over it's
designed overload to ground. It won't protect from brownouts but overload from the lines is taken care of.
As for the HPS lights and fluorescent lights glowing, it's an indicator of higher voltage in the air. This high voltage, low amp energy is not real
harmfull but it can cause small problems within circuits in electronics. I have lost a a few TVs and various stereo components and computers to this.
The surge protectors don't help this and the electronic equipment doesn't always burn out, it just gets problems after the thunderstorm is over and
there is no evidence that it actually came from the storm because it didn't actually die. It degrades the preformance of things or makes things
flicker or crackle. Living in a spot with frequent lightning strikes and having your stand up during thunderstorms you become aware of things that
happen. You get used to this but you learn to be aware of things as you live on a hill full of minerals and an underground water source feeding
springs farther down the hills.
My mothers house has a weird thing caused by high voltage power lines close by. The tic tester goes off around the metal heat ducts. The high
voltage lines created a field that energised the long flat ductwork in the basement. The furnace contractor put a rubber boot between the ducts and
furnace so the energy built up did not go to ground. grounding the ducts solved the problem. Although this induced voltage appeared not appear to
cause health problems, it did cause mental confusion indirectly.
Things don't have to cause big disasters to effect your life. These little things can cause expenses that seem unrelated. I have noticed from
checking receipts that I seem to have bought more new appliances and electronics during Solar Max. I save all most receipts for things along with the
manuals and file them with the taxes for the years. I got used to this with my business so investigating this was not hard. I did not cross check
the remaining things with in between solar flares though, that would take a lot of work. I had noticed that there was a relationship between these
times of purchase and the solar max when going through receipts a while back. I have a different situation than most people though because of my
location over the underground water. This may or not apply to others homes. Most people don't have lightning strike their trees on their property
many times in twenty years either. It keeps the pine trees from growing to tall, blowing the tops off to keep them at about a hundred twenty five
feet tall. It keeps me in a constant supply of campfire wood, the hardwood trees can't handle it and many times die when they get blown apart.
Is what I have experienced pertinent to others situations? I'm not sure, every location is different so I can't say for sure. I can only tell
others what I have noticed here. Having this problem over the years has steered me to a lot of specialized research in this field of voltages in the
air and ground voltages. I have well over a hundred hours of research into this over the last twenty years and at least another hundred hours of
thinking about it. I also talked personally to electricians about it and conversed online with electrical engineers. I even spoke with people from
the local national weather service about it and got input from them.
