Source: Steam (Link is slow due to high traffic) ________ Many Steam users are reporting trouble connecting to the Steam servers. This is reportedly due to wide-spread power outages. "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." Thanks to Matt for the submit!
