A little over a year ago, I was reading an article about Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs), gigantic clouds of magnetized plasma emitted from solar flares. The information about potential damage to the Earth was alarming. With my husband thousands of miles away from me in Canada, I began to wonder just what I would do if a huge CME made a direct hit on our planet. There would be no way to contact each other, and civilization would quickly shatter into chaos. How would we find each other? Where would we go? How would we survive?
