Weird. Kind Cool & Spooky.

I think I may be the last person to know this. We'll see.

I went to Google Maps yesterday to find a friend's house in Ireland. I had heard that you can see it but I didn't realize how well. I then typed in my home address (in the box at the top of the page) and of course found it on the map. I used my mouse button and as I scrolled down, my house came into focus from an aerial view. Then, a picture of my house popped up. A real picture of my house! Our garage door was even open and I could see my old van. At first I thought it was cool and then it kind of freaked me out. And to make it a little spookier, one of my children is in the photo. Very blurry but it is my oldest, I think.

So, go to Google and check out the maps. Look up the house you grew up in. Look at your street on the map. You will be amazed at the technology. Now, am I the last person to know this?

How the heck do they do that? That is totally freaky. Luckily the one of my current house is a very old one. That makes me feel better. But our last house I can see my van parked outside. Weird.

Thanks for the link!

I was kind of freaked out when I found out about this too!

I saw this a while ago and it is really weird. I even did Google Earth on a vacation spot that i went to growing up and could see the design on the bottom of the pool. Scary..
