    If you don't know already, Valve's Steam Gaming service is down, this is due to wide spread power outage in Seattle.
    Steam Forum post found below (if you must see, there servers are getting hammered already).

    "Steam Is Currently Having Trouble Connecting to the Steam Servers" Error - 15/12/06
    There is currently a wide spread power outage in Bellevue/Seattle impacting Steam Server availability. Unfortunately ETA for when the power will be restored is unknown as the power company will only work on restoring it once the storm has eased and the high winds have died down.

    Any issues you are experiencing with connecting to Steam are only temporary, as this isn't an end-user issue.

    Please check this Forum or Steam News for further updates."



    Power outage has been caused by howling windstorms and heavy rains across Seattle this morning. This has already caused 3 deaths, heavy flooding and left 1.5 million homes and businesses within Washington and Oregon without power.
    Authorities reported restoration of power could take days.
