Subject: conditions last night

Conditions last night were quite unusual although it happens sometimes when the A and K indexes suddenly increase.  At about 0530Z on Oct. 22, PZ5UE had a good signal here, but, the calling stations were almost all Europeans.  ON,OZ,OM,and DL were all  heard,  but, no east coast or Midwest U.S. stations.  I heard more Europeans in 20 minutes than I have in the last two years.  Unfortunately,  none of them was calling cq or seemed to be listening for anyone except PZ5UE.  I hope this is a sign for better times ahead.  Can  anyone explain the mechanism for this kind of propagation?
