My latency is usually around 30ms. But today it's 100+ms. No matter what I do it stays at 100+ms. I'm on the Portland data center.

Not necessarily your Internet, but the Internet. Network latency is mostly about distance, and the route between you and the data center can change based on link conditions along the path (route). The Shadow folks have no control over this, and your ISP might not either. The Internet is not a monolith.
