Our New House is on Google Street View

October 21, 2012

This is the first time I’ve ever seen Casa McGee on Street View. New house, or old house.

Google drove some of the main streets in our area about two years ago, or maybe more, but it didn’t do a thorough photo shoot in our old neighborhood at the time. So the old house wasn’t there.

I saw the Street View car driving through town back in the spring and it was here for a good 4-5 days, it seemed. I remember seeing lots of tweets from various Tri-City folks over the course of a week.

And now, six months later, the new imagery is online and … BAM … there’s Casa McGee.


The fine print at the bottom says the imagery was taken in April 2012. Judging by the condition of our lawn, it looks like early April — the grass wasn’t high enough to need a cutting yet. So, that’s about a month after we moved in.

What’s cool is that there are a lot of new homes still being built in the neighborhood and on our street, so this imagery is already wayyyyy outdated. But, a year or two from now, when the whole neighborhood is built out, these images will (probably) still be online and it’ll fun to look back and how things looked just after we got here.
