It’s true! We now exist on the map that matters mostest! Check it:

Let’s take a look at how we look:

      There were several sightings of the Google Street View car around the ‘Wood when I wrote that initial “where are we?” post, so that makes sense, seasonally.

    The shots from Bernal Hill are surprisingly lovely, too.

    Looks like end of February beginning of March was when the car came around, based on looking at improvements on my and my neighbor’s houses.

    And, of course, they had to do this on Trash Day, so my block is littered with trash cans. I think it was fairly recently done, considering the arrangement of cars in and around my block.

    Finally, my new doors are on the Internet!

    Glad they caught my place when we had just weeded and swept the front yard :-)
