Yes, absolutely.  

It's just rare, like a hundred-year flood or a 9.8 earthquake.

In the meantime, if you want to try CW by the aurora, look in to auroral communications on VHF... VHF radio waves will scatter off the auroral ionization irregularites.

I heard a buzzy CW signal from W9 on 2m once here near Washington DC off the aurora after a big flare.  Made a few successful AU contacts on 6m that night.
