If I had measured it using a compass on July 28 of last year and compared it to this year I am sure it would be much more north right now. But since I never predicted this would happen I cannot prove it. But it doesn't seem to be right.
Do it now, for next year! Unless the 2012 at the end of your name signifies that you believe in the end times?
Near the northern and southern extremes where the Sun is skimming the horizon, the change in refraction can cause the Sun to appear further north or south than expected and cause an expected sunrise to either occur several minutes later than expected, or not occur at all because the Sun never set!

Also you mention satellite TV. Have you ever had it? I was always needing to adjust my satellite. Or just having to sit and wait for it to come back on. Sometimes it was the rain, wind, etc. But sometimes it would just appear to be off on clear calm sunny days...
