Looks like Sully Station is finally being imaged for Google's Street View - car has been going through the neighborhood(s) the last few days.

Caught me by surprise, otherwise I would have run outside and...you know...struck a pose:

LOL I'm tempted to do the same thing. Maybe I will have to start wearing funny hats or bunny ears to work... so I'm prepared just in case I see that car driving by! Hope they hit my area when the sun's shining and everything's blooming. Might as well see it at its best.

I have to ask the obvious.....why is the Easter Bunny's face blurred? If you've seen one Easter Bunny, you've seen them all

Privacy concerns. Brought on by BAG (Bunny Activist Group), an offshoot of PITA.

Lol! I thought the same thing when I found this image - my assumption (made MUCH later) is that Google uses software, not people, to blur out what they don't want in focus, so this was automagically blurred...

How do you go about finding exactly when they're coming?

Look out the window - and that's not kidding.

I was sitting at my desk when a really strange looking "pizza car" turned into a pipestem and caught my eye (I'm near, not on, a pipestem driveway). I simply exclaimed, almost aloud, "Oh! That's the Google car my daughter mentioned passing her last week on the walk from school!" and that was that - it turned into and out of the pipestem, then went back down the block and came back the other way. Had I been on my toes I could have run outside and pulled a pose.
