I couldn't get on USGS about 8 hours ago.
I finally figured out they had changed their DNSKey, but my DNS server didn't have the new one. So I had to switch my DNS server from my ISP provided one to OpenDNS.
Works fine now.
Um... Lol.... So..... How do you do that? How can I change the server name?

The Science and Technology Directorate of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) sponsors the "DNSSEC Deployment Initiative". This initiative encourages "all sectors to voluntarily adopt security measures that will improve security of the Internet's naming infrastructure, as part of a global, cooperative effort that involves many nations and organizations in the public and private sectors." DHS also funds efforts to mature DNSSEC and get it deployed inside the U.S. federal government.
It was reported that on March 30, 2007, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security proposed "to have the key to sign the DNS root zone solidly in the hands of the US government." However no U.S. Government officials were present in the meeting room and the comment that sparked the article was made by another party. DHS later commented on why they believe others jumped to the false conclusion that the U.S. Government had made such a proposal: "The U.S. Department of Homeland Security is funding the development of a technical plan for implementing DNSSec, and last October distributed an initial draft of it to a long list of international experts for comments. The draft lays out a series of options for who could be the holder, or "operator," of the Root Zone Key, essentially boiling down to a governmental agency or a contractor. "Nowhere in the document do we make any proposal about the identity of the Root Key Operator," said Maughan, the cyber-security research and development manager for Homeland Security."

Anyone noticing an UPTICK in 4's and 5's all over the place lately, especially active over last 12 hours?
Seems like all the regular hotspots are rumbling at the same time.
Just seems a bit unusual to me.
ADD: Just need Japan to chime in now...
