I live in Ohio and all that I can say is that the sun is setting more to the north than it did when I was a yougster at home.
My parents bought their home in 1966 and things were put in their place such as our swing set , patios . trees for future shade etc. based specifically on where the sun was at a particular time of day.
Also, as a youngster I had to be in the house or at least the yard at sunset. I know exactly where I would look to watch the sun.
I do not know how to explain it, but if the sun has not changed position then something has rotated the entire countryside where I grew up. My parents have commented as well. My mother now has to draw the drapes on her patio doors at the rear of the house. Before they were always left open as the patio was always shade in the evening.
Just my two cents but I know what I know. But I most certainly do not know why.

If the sun stayed in place for an extra day, the earth would have stopped rotating.
Had the earth done the impossible and suddenly stopped rotating, all the people on the surface would continue to travel eastward at speeds up to 1000 miles per hour and go flying. Those near the equator would have traveled the fastest. The only people that would have survived would have lived at the frozen poles.

This has happened before ; Immanuel Velikovsky , here's a couple of excerpt from his 1950s work .
"The Book of Joshua ....relates the order of events . "Joshua chased his enemies ... as they fled, great stones were cast from the sky. That same day , the sun stood still over Gibeon and the moon over the valley of Ajalon ."
.... "Allowing for the distance in longitude , it must have been early morning or night in the Western Hemishpere.
We go to the shelf where stand the books with the historical traditions of the aboriginees of Central America. ""
Velikosky links events chronologically
"In the Mexican Anals of Cuauhtitlan the history of the empire of Culhuacan and Mexico, written in the Nahua-Indian of the sixteenth century - it is related that a cosmic catastrophe occured in the remote past , the night did not end for a long time. "
"The biblical narrative describes the sun remaining in the sky for an additional day ("about a whole day") The Midrashim , the books of the ancient traditions not embodied in the Scriptures , relate that the sun and the moon stood still for thirty six itim , or eighteen hours , and thus from sunrise to sunset lasted about thirty hours."
"We could follow a path around the earth and inquire into the various traditions concerning the prolonged day and prolonged night , with sun and moon absent or tarrying at differnet points along the zodiac , while the earth underwent a bombardment of stones in a world ablaze. But we must postpone this journey. There was more than one catashtrophe when , according to the memory of mankind , the earth refused to play the chronometer by undisturbed rotation on its axis. First we must differentiate the single occurences of cosmic catastrophes , some of which took place before the one described here, some after it , some of greater extent , some of lesser."
Other input ; w refernce to the last line Velikovsky eventually reached the conclusion (by 1980s) that the return of the comet is every 3500 years . The disasters that folllowed the events re sun and moon and came with the comet about 1500 BC . Read Velikovsky ; there is a huge weight of backup not just these snippets .In all seriousness comet c/2x51hell could be on the way in .
the traditions were not introduced etc

What he told me was that the sun would usually always move begind a tree as we sat at the Garden patio table, This is in the height of summer we are talking about.... Not once has it moved at that angle this year.
It misses the treeline completely , its a lot closer and a lot higher in the sky.

Just adding my 2 cents. I have a swimming pool in my backyard. There is a heavy wooded area directly south and west of our pool. We only have a certain window if we want to swim in the sun and that window seems to have shortened or changed from previous years. Used to be the sun would hit the tree tops at 3pm, but now, it seems to do it just a little bit earlier.
