Thanks for your patience. As mentioned in the OP, we expected this maintenance to only last for two hours -- I also included a link to a webpage that will allow you to see the maintenance times in your timezone.
Just a quick update, though: we've extended the maintenance by about 30 minutes, so we are hoping to have the shard back in in 38 minutes from now, give or take.
