A View From Space
A friend recently introduced me to a really cool online resource through MSN called Virtual Earth. It has satellite photos of the entire US, and you can zoom in on pretty much any location or address you want. In fact, just enter an address and it will take you right there. The images are a few years old, but they are genuine. In fact, I could see my old car parked in the Evangel parking lot! (You can zoom in really, really close.)

You should definitely check it out. Oh, and if you want to see the roof of our new house in Yorkville, and where it is in relation to the rest of the town, search on 505 Freemont St, Yorkville IL. We're right on the SW corner of E Somonauk St and Freemont.
