Instagram Is Down: Electrical Storm in Virginia

Instagram is down because of the electrical storm strike

How was your day without your Instagram dosage? Out of sudden Instagram wasn't able to load on my Samsung Tab and the similar page as above was showed up:

"Instagram is down :( An electrical storm in Virginia has affected most of our servers. As we speak, our team of engineers are working hard to restore service."
Well, as usual the first thing that I did after woke up is to check out my Instagram photo-stream, always inspired to see some of the photos people shared (especially artistic and family portrait). However it just stop functioning today by showing the error page.

By referring back to the last and latest friend's Instagram update, total down time for Instagram is around 13 hours. [Yes, While I am typing this, Instagram is working now where you can check out your friend's photo but you can upload new photo only] Just that the function of checking your updates (Popular & Explore page, people who follow/like your photo ) are still disabled/unavailable.

Anyhow, it did affect me and somehow reminded me that how Instagram has become part of my life. Everyday I will check it out and upload new photos. What happen when Instagram/Facebook/Twitter suddenly server down/disappear forever? Woah, I can't imagine how mess up my life would be haha. [Besides blogging I did quite a lot of social sharing haha] Anyhow, I hope Instagram manage to recover from the damages and retrieve all the photos people have uploaded.

To be honest, I took a break from Instagram but I spent more time on Facebook & Twitter instead. Now the question is, "When Instagram was down, did you still continue take photos so you can upload later? Or you took a break?"
