Default Show us where you live (Literally)

Here's the aireal view of my home.

Steps:

  1. Go to http://local.live.com
  2. Type in your address at the top
  3. Switch to Hybrid View
  4. Using the tool bar switch to Birds Eye View.
  5. Use the compass to change the viewing angle.
  6. Screen shot it and post it.
Works best in metro areas.

Note the car in the driveway disappears when I change the view. Must have been taken on a different day.

Here's the best I can do. You live in a city and I live in the country so the camaera is not as good. I'm the house in the center with 2 acres of land...a row of trees and the road going out to the 1 car garage at the back of the property (two car attached also) on the left side of School at the bend.

I can't quite figure out how to grab a screenshot, but the pic of our house is at least two years old. Doesn't have the driveway I put in two summers ago, or the fence I built the summer before that. Much better resolution than Google Earth, though.

Mine was taken before my house was built - it's just dirt

Here is my house, it's the one in the upper left. As well as the best high school baseball field in south east Wisconsin.

All 4 angles. FYI - 'round here you paint your roof white to combat the sun! You can see my token chunk of grass in there somewhere .

Sause, is that appleton ave? Been a while since I've been there. Grew up in MF and went to North HS (when there was a North HS...)
