Heard a very short blurb on the radio saying a big solar flare will hit on Friday.  May have some impact on propagation.  Searching Google finds me this:
http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/technology/2014/06/solar-flares-disrupt-communications-on-earth-could-send-shockwave-on-friday-the-13th/
"Solar Flares Disrupt Communications on Earth, Could Send Shockwave on Friday the 13th"

"The “solar events” caused brief blackouts in high frequency communications when they struck, twice on Tuesday morning and once this morning, all between the hours of 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. EDT."

Yea I saw this story too along with the mention of a couple of R1 (blackout events).

So I rushed off to look at the prop forcast sites and they said pretty much quiet space weather.

Weird.

The HF bands do seem rather quiet today.  As if it was a weekday, and not the weekend.  Overheard a QSO where one of the hams said that it was quiet for him as well.

Even 14.313 is quiet...   Smiley
