  •  Well.... (8+ / 0-)

    My 9/23, with new BOP on, is SSE @ 2 degrees (2nd dark ring).  This seems a relatively small change.

    But peraspera's 10/9 is NNW @ 2 degrees (2nd dark ring).  This is a relatively large, 4 degree, change in a fairly short period of time with no major changes in hardware load to help explain the change.  

    One would think the scale chosen for a bubble level would have some relationship to the range of acceptable or anticipated deviation from dead level.  In this instance it appears to have swung from the extreme in one direction of the scale to the extreme in the opposite direction of the scale in the space of a week.  

    Imagine if your house foundation moved that much.  It would probably be condemned in a heartbeat, if it was even still standing.
