As I am sure many of you realized, the site was running very slow yesterday. This was something beyond my control. My server within the datacenter ended up checking out 100% so there was nothing on my end, the problem ended up being a network issue. Let me explain...

There has been some severe weather happen in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, which is a MAJOR internet hub in the United States. They have had some massive fiber outtages as a result of the storm. They have been franctically working to repair the fiber. This effected access times on the server, as most Internet traffic would have to trace your connection through to the particular datacenter.

So the server, hardware and the data, is 100% fine, it was just the Internet trace routes from one's computer through the down hub to make way to the server. Here is a copy of the storm that affected that area:

Severe storms continue to cross northern and eastern sections of Texas into western Louisiana to southwest Arkansas through the overnight hours. Severe thunderstorms are capable of producing large hail, damaging winds and tornadoes.

There have been reports of tornadoes and severe thunderstorms with large hail that have produced damage all around north Texas, especially near Haltom City and Haskell, Texas.

Reports of 5 injuries and 1 death from Haltom City, Texas a suburb north of Dallas, from a reported tornado have come in from north Texas.

Residents from eastern Texas across the deep South need to monitor and be ready to take cover tonight into Saturday from these dangerous thunderstorms.

On Saturday, the severe weather threat will move eastward and will include parts of Mississippi, Alabama and the western Florida Panhandle during the day and into Georgia and the rest of the Florida Panhandle late in the day and through the evening. Tornadoes are also possible with these storms, as well. Severe weather will then shift into the Carolinas for Saturday night and Sunday morning.

There is a wintry side of the storm as heavy snow continues thorugh parts of Kansas. Parts of southwestern Kansas have already picked up nearly a foot of snow, along with gusty winds. Rain will change to snow in Kansas City overnight. Rain mixed with snow will fall on Saturday from central Illinois, thorugh Indiana to north central Ohio. Snow will have a difficult time accululating during the daylight hours.

Sunday will feature a major storm system along the Eastern Seaboard and that will produce heavy rain and strong winds along the coast from the Middle Atlantic to New England from Sunday through Monday. Interior areas of the Northeast, especially in the higher elevations, could pick up a considerable amount of snow before the storm winds down on Tuesday.

So, the downtime was nothing on my end of things, it effected a LOT of websites, just wanted to give everyone a heads up on why the site was slow yesterday.
