It appears that there has been an outage at Cloudflare. It seems that things are back and running according to this:

I didn't appear to be impacting at any of my sites.

Is that what that was? I was on the South China Morning Post site scmp.com and it went out for about 15 minutes, everything dead.

“Massive spike in CPU usage caused primary and backup systems to fall over. Impacted all services. No evidence yet attack related. Shut down service responsible for CPU spike and traffic back to normal levels. Digging in to root cause.”
