Were you born during a period of solar minimum or solar maximum? Find out with this nifty tool from www.SpaceWeather.com.

You can also use it to correlate important Earth history events like stock market crashes, the Mets winning, and global warming/cooling with the 11-year solar cycle. Dates go back to the 1700s.

Michael, my statement was tongue-in-cheek. Obviously there is no way to extrapolate a climate change with only 200 yrs. of solar records, and less than that of weather records. I guess you figured that much out though since you did include a smiley icon on your post. ;)

I'm about a 10. I have always been comfortable with "minimums" Now I know why!

Hi, Susie ~ Around 100 or so - neat, interesting tool. I read through the solar max/min stuff, too. Pretty neat.

I just saw "ice" in Beell's blog and did a quick peek - turns out it may be headed for NE OK/Arkansas. Hope Missouri escapes - my poor aunt is just going crazy this winter. She usually tries to get south, but health concerns and etc. have kept her home this year and she's COLD! You keep warm, and keep this interesting info coming for us!
