After reading
I find myself holding on to my towel and saying:

"This must be some new definition of the word 'erwarten' with which
I'm not familiar."

To wit, the weather (in particular the effects of the derecho on June
29/30) is a predictable kind of thing, but a leap second was unexpected.

This is a stark contrast to the report of sysmanager pager activations at
where it seems that different ways of massaging the data can lead to
varying interpretations about whether the derecho or the leap second
was worse.
