Google operates an immense network of data centers with load-balancing, failover in place and so on. With hundreds of thousands of servers, it's just not like the average site.
It's certainly possible to look for google.com or one of their services (from one location or another) and find a temporary outage, although that is pretty rare. When it does happen, it has been extremely short term. One time about two years ago there was a short-term DNS issue but that was resolved quickly.
No problems here in Boston, MA

Google has been down for me here in Oak Park, Illinois (next to Chicago) for almost an hour. That includes Google.com, GMail, Adwords, Analytics, Adsense, Local Business, Google Finance, everything.
I get blank pages no matter where I go. View source shows blank pages as well.
Hmm, I'm thinking Comcast is the problem or there's a DNS issue somewhere. Ebay is down too.
