Beware Of Shift In Magnetic North

National Oceanagraphic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has issued an advisory on the shift of magnetic north detectable by compass headings. This is due to the thousands of tons of steel in motorhomes leaving Arizona for the northern states. This annual shift in the magnetic north is called the SNOWBIRD EFFECT and takes place every April-May when the temperature hits 90 degrees.

seen towing a 1936 Bently to car shows with a 1953 Vincent Black Shadow to humiliate the Harley Davidson crowd.....trout killer and birder....there are no bad days

I understand that the shift may be delayed this year due to a continuation of poor weather in the central states.

Oh, I don't think so. We left our FW in storage in FL this year and we were able to travel back at a higher rate of speed last week than most of the RVs. We passed so many on 95 that I lost count, and it seemed like most of them were from Quebec, eh.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

Except for this year when it might be June before it stops snowing in the north.
