Topband: meteors

A question for knowledgeable topbanders who've been on the band 
longer than I have.  I can't remember any discussions or articles on 
this subject.

We are currently near the peak of the annual Geminids meteor shower. 
Coincidentally, topband conditions are poor despite "good STI 
numbers". Is this related?  I reason that if the meteors are ionizing 
the E-layer enough to support propagation on 6 meters, wouldn't that 
level of ionization be enough to absorb low-band signals attempting 
to pass through it?

Has this been discussed/written on before?
