Huckleberries Online

Drudge Link Crashed

If you tried to access Huckleberries or the Web site between 11:20 a.m.-noon, you were thwarted by The Druge Report. According to web deveopers, the site was down several times because of the huge influx of hits we got from the Drudge Report linking to the park ranger story. We have had some other popular stories online today, including Paul Turner's Slice blog post (which made site) and now, the data story (suggesting Spokane is predicted to be next site for mass shooting), but it was Drudge that crashed our site.

Question: How often do you clip on The Drudge Report?
