Dreamhost is moving the server info to a new farm on the East coast from california, creating intermittent downtime. They said the move would be soon, without a solid date. This means a new server IP address, which leads to cloudflare not being smart enough to update = downtime. Cloudflare has been disabled, and DNS is propagating – expect off and on service at slow speeds for a few hours. Cloudflare will be re-enabled once the move is complete and things will be back to normal.
**edit**.. homepage will load slow until I get an email from dreamhost that the server move is complete and can reenable cloudflare.
