      One of the amazing things about the the 1997-8 El
      Nino was how it ended. In the spring, a third van
      Allen belt formed between the inner proton
      <br>dominated one and the outer electon dominated one. Then the
      incredible occurred. Waters which had been 5 degrees warmer
      than average, to depths <br>of 500 feet, covering an
      area as large as the U.S., suddenly dropped ten
      degrees--IN ONE MONTH. What the heck was going on. Simple. La
      Nina and El Nino really are ying/yang--because they
      are related in the fact that when an electronic
      anomaly is caused by ocean temperatures, when significant
      flaring events occur protons and electrons get
      sorted--depending on those ocean temperatures. In this case, a
      signficant enough flaring event in the context of the
      existing El Nino sent such a significant amount of protons
      to the El Nino waters, that cirrus enhancement could
      not and did not occur for a signficant period. Then
      the gyre movements from wind patterns thereby changed
      rebounded, and what was from above now was from below as
      well. Soon, ocean movements were stronger electrically
      than anything that could come from the sky, and La
      Nina was on.

        On Feb 28th, the Interplanetary Magnetic Field
        swung to a strong south-pointing orientation. That,
        coupled with an elevated solar wind speed and density,
        triggered a G-1 class geomagnetic storm. The result was
        some high latitude aurora. See this link for a
        photgraph of aurora observed over Quebec :
        <a href=http://www.spaceweather.com/aurora/images/01mar02/Moussette2.jpg target=new>http://www.spaceweather.com/aurora/images/01mar02/Moussette2.jpg</a> . As of right now, there are 3 sunspot regions,
        namely 9839, 9842, and 9845, that appear to be capable
        of producing M-class flares. Regions 9839 and 9842
        are close to rotating out of view over the western
        limb of the solar disk. Sunspot region 9845, however,
        is close to the sun's central meridian. A rather
        large coronal hole is also approaching the sun's
        central meridian, and coming into an Earth-pointing
        position. High speed colar wind gusts are likely around the
        first of next week.<br><br>The current solar and
