Why so many stations hearing me all of a sudden?

This evening a whole lot more stations than usual seem to be hearing my 20m transmissions. Tops was the 15:50 transmission, see below, copied by 20 stations. My station description spells out my antenna in some detail. It's nothing special and too near the ground. It hasn't changed in some days. The high station count happened when I was using my maximum transmit power level, about 2.5 watts. Is this a propagation fluke? None is serious DX, all in the 2000 to 2500 kilometer range. Twenty is pretty busy tonight, with around 90 WSPR stations on the band. But it's been that busy before.
