Amazon Alexa Outage

“I’m having trouble connecting to the internet.  Take a look at the help section in your Alexa app”.

So  maybe we are too dependent on Alexa.  I think I we have 4 of them now, a big one downstairs and three in the bedrooms.  They make great clock radios.  At first I thought it was my wifi, then I reset the router.  Realized all the other devices were ok, but all the Alexas were down to varying degrees.  The Echo in my bedroom just gave us the Purple Ring of Silence.  Downstairs Mama Alexa in the kitchen gave the Red Ring of Death and a message to check my app.  I wonder if this is going to get to be a problem.
