Possible, but I'd think you'd notice bulbs burning out or devices that fry.

If you happen to have a broken neutral line, you can have voltages anywhere from zero to 240V.  The way to think of it is that the power coming into your home is 240V.  The neutral line is what breaks it into two 120V circuits.  Lose that, and the dividing of the 240 will be determined by how matched the loads on the two circuits are to each other.

Another possibility is that the power company's voltage regulator is out of whack.
