Apparently, at some point before the big windstorm but within the last few years, Google went down the street by my parents’ house. They were home, by the car in the driveway, but apparently didn’t notice (or were observing from back a ways in the house). But you can see the very blurred shape of our previous dog looking out the window, guarding the house.
It’s a bit weird, seeing what’s there and what’s not. A little time machine.
I’ve been listening to The Lost City of Z from the library, though, so I guess I’m in the mood for contemporary archaeology.
I also noticed that they now have names for the streets in the new development behind the mall. “King Arthur Way” and “Parliment Court”. Heh. [sic --I'll have to go see if the name really is misspelled in the physical world]. “Armada Drive”. Heh. Think about it.
Another weird thing. New Germany-Trebein Rd. is still marked as that, even after the stupid renaming pushed through by the developers. (Yay, Google!) On the street view, the new extension of New Germany-Trebein seems to be fully complete, and it is on the map; but it wasn’t explored by the Street View folks. So it really has to be 2008 or so.
