Radio propagation

For the second day in a row now, the ham radoio bands have been really quiet here, at my location. Went out and made sure that my antenna's had not fallen out of the tree. Their have been some signals, but no DX to speak of, not even the Asian happy hour on any band. Usually Asia is very strong here at certain times of the day and night, but haven't heard them at all. Really surprising considering that the SFI is up to 127 now. The numbers seem to be going up, and have not seen any indication that their might be a radio blackout of some sort. This has me scratching my head.
