I have been looking for more info on it also. DH had said something about the axis shifting also, but I have been unsuccessful in finding anything on it.
Yes, Arby, this is the first year the shadows have been that extended. I noticed it around mid summer. I have a pine tree next to my garden, in previous years, the shadow would cover 98% of my garden, so I did not have to cover with sun screen material. This past summer/fall only 75% of my garden was shaded. The intensity of direct sun tends to wither and fry my plants. Another interesting thing, I strive to make my avocado seeds grow. Knowing full well it is too hot and to dry here for them to grow. Last year all my seeds grew and I had two trees that were promising. (The skunk that ate them thought so too.)
My theory, maybe the earth shifted during those earthquakes. Our weather from summer on has been more like CA and the weather in TX has been more like ours. I can not find anything on that either, but I am still looking. Also, if I remember my history correctly, the huge CA earthquake in the 1900's then the drought/dust bowl? DH said maybe the powers that be do not want the public to know because it would cause panic. Changes in our weather patterns would disrupt farming and food crops world wide.
This summer I will confirm the shadow difference. I have a chair placed against the house, for years I'd sit in it with only my toes in the sunshine doing my work. We shall see if it has changed.
Raised our roof or moved our house... hmmmm, I do not think he did.
