Beware the solar flare: Did you put on your sunscreen this morning? ;)

Following the biggest solar flare in four years earlier this week, forecasters are warning of unusually high levels of UV radiation today (Friday 18th Feb).

Check out this bad boy...:

In addition they are expecting disruption of GPS systems and Power Lines, so don't be surprised if your trusty Garmin suddenly sends you to Dakar... ;)

In all seriousness though, have you experienced anything today along the lines of the expected disruptions?
