Comment: Now that's weird...

Now that's weird...

placed my hunting compass which has an hourglass configuration when opened next to the sink (flat edge) at the back of my house. This orients the painted North on the compass straight out the back of my house. The back of my house is oriented roughly to the North. So this should have this compass pointing roughly north also.

A few hours ago when I read this post I checked a reading and the compass was at exactly 20 degrees, that is, a little right of the due north reading. I figured oh well, I didn't get this house exactly square to the North and South as I had intended when I built it.

Now the weird part. A few minutes ago I checked the compass again and it is now reading 70 degrees. That is a 50 degree change in just a few hours.

Like I said, weird.
