Interesting articles on the impact of solar storms on GPS. Anyone out caching on December 6th notice the effect?

Did space storm cause surprise GPS disruption?

I can't comment on if I noticed an effect on December 6th, what I have run into however in the last three weeks or so is frequent problems in locating satellites coupled with accuracy that at times is jumping all over the place from 500' down to 60' etc. Sask Grizzly Cacher has experienced the same problems. I'm wondering now if this is related or is there some other explanation...has anyone else noticed this?
