This has been making rounds for quite awhile, I am surprised it has not been 
picked up here.
Frequency deviations in Continental Europe including impact on electric clocks 
steered by frequency
Continental European Power System has been experiencing, since mid-January, 
continuous significant power deviations due to shortage in supply from one 
transmission system operator of the interconnected system.  All actions are 
taken by the TSOs of Continental Europe and by ENTSO-E to resolve the situation.

The power deviations have led to a slight drop in the electric frequency. This 
in turn has also affected those electric clocks that are steered by the 
frequency of the power system and not by a quartz crystal: they show currently 
a delay of 5 minutes. TSOs will set up a compensation program to correct the 
time in the future.
