Services including Dropbox, Google App Engine, and tumblr have been failing. Dropbox's cloud centers are located along the east coast, it is highly likely that problems experienced with the service are related to the severe weather currently affecting the area. Dropbox uses Amazon S3 cloud servers. East coast storms have been; in the past, directly blamed for Amazon's cloud service being knocked offline."
