slow load times

i'm not sure if this is technically a "bug", but for the last few months, i've noticed caltopo loading new data *much* slower than it used to. i.e., i'll drag a map and it will take several seconds for new data to appear in the blank squares created by the drag. it also sometimes takes a minute for the box in the upper right hand corner to show the actual elevation at the cursor. it may run faster with less layers/information, but not dramatically so.

is this a known thing? are others experiencing it?

    Not something I'm aware of.

    Does this happen regardless of the map layer you have selected (the three to test for comparison purposes would be Google Maps, MapBuilder Topo and USGS 7.5')?

    it's similarly slow on the usgs and mapbuilder. however, google maps (and
    satellite, which i also checked) is lightning quick.
    i use chrome typically, but checked it in safari as well (without even
    logging in to the site) and it's the same.
