Am I the only one experiencing this issue?

for the last week or so when I try to get on the site after midnight, I'm getting this message;

This website is under heavy load

We're sorry, too many people are accessing this website at the same time. We're working on this problem. Please try again later.

I got that message 2 nights ago but it disappeared after I reloaded the home page.  Seems strange the message come so late at night.  I would have expected  midday or early evening (east coast) to be the busiest time for the website. 

Hey guys - Thanks for letting us know about this.  We've put our dev team on the case . . .

I have had that on occasion recently, but a few moments later the browser reload button gets me back to the desired page. So if it happens to you, I suggest you try again a bit later. 

The "Heavy Load" issue should be mostly mitigated during the day -- if it is still happening, we definitely need to know about it.  Next time it happens, please post here with the time it happened to you so we can investigate.  Thanks guys.

1:10 am PST it happened again. I hit the reload button and it came up first time. The last few times it happened the reload button didn't help.

I'm just surprised too see anyone else up at this time of the morning. 

It happened this AM at around 7:30 AM CT. I just figured it was everybody coming off of holiday to their first day back to work :)

I got this message last night around 7:30 pm EST.

Thanks @Kent R.  - We had other major problems around then.  This was caused by them.  On a positive note, we didn't see it happen last night at 2am -- a first in some time.  Keep us posted, folks.

Happened to me today at exactly 1:00pm PST.

@Joshua Dorkin  

Just FYI, still happening this morning.  Just happened to me about half a dozen times in the past 5 minutes (10:05-10:10am PST). 

Thanks guys - we're having some infrastructure issues this morning.  The team is working hard to remedy the issue.  Thanks for the head's up
