On the contrary, December 3rd was a stronger day than December 2nd,
with a much smaller maximum donation. All previous years when the
totals leveled out like that they stayed level +/- 20% for weeks.

I'm trying to sort out why the stated expectations were so much lower
than the prior measurements off-list.
