Couldn't get it to work- for my address it showed my next door neighbor.

For my old address and my house growing up it showed an aerial view.

Really cute, though!

Google has a "picture perfect" image of our house--grass freshly mowed and edged, no cars in view and a blue sky. I was able to do a print screen copy and save it in word. It looks really nice.

You guys could take a quick photo of your screen and save the pic!

It showed mine, but it was before landscaping was done and has two random trucks in the driveway that aren't ours or anyone we know.

Google hasn't done street views of my neighbor hood, so it's the satellite view. Not very cool.

So I put in my parents address. It's a picture of a big tree. I don't even think it's their tree. But maybe.

So I put in my in-laws house. It's a picture of the street. No houses visible at all, but a good mile and a half of cracked road way.

It showed our place here in Germany too. But definitely summer pictures, with trees covered in leaves - not like they look when it really is snowing.

Fun, thanks. Although I think this is the Google photo that they took in the summer, so all it shows is my van in the driveway and the tree in front that blocks any view of the house.

It didn't work for me. It just "snowed" then said a donation was made for homeless and try again. What am I doing wrong? It sounds neat, but now I'm worried that this group I am not familiar with has our address.

I didn't have a chance to try this when first posted, so I looked today while waiting in the car. Instead of coming to 2Peas I googled "House in Snow Globe" and got this crazy article sofa set on fire by snow globe, check out the punny comments after it.

Thanks to Peas, as always, for helping me pass time during endless practice and carpool pickups. I learn the craziest things.

And I hope I can get a decent screen shot for my DD.

It has the house a row up from us. But it does that when I try to see the Google map of our house. I can navigate down and eventually see our house, but it doesn't come up with it at first.

I tried my sister's place, and all I saw was a close up of the roof, lol.
