Ah, got it. Yes, 13,983,305 on March 7, right? 2012 only rose an average of 30K per day in the same time frame though, so this year could easily beat that, or easily not. Your balloon bouncing on the ceiling is very apt.
I wasn't following the daily numbers in 2012, but looking at the spreadsheet, the increase from 2/28 to 3/1 was, in fact, 186K, but that was two days: a 209K loss on 2/29 followed by 395K gain on 3/1. That must have made some heads spin! That's a balloon bouncing past a ceiling fan.
