    I'm guessing lack of data.

    Is Australia west - of what? But yes, generally true if that data is correct.

    Googling Earth is on of my favorite pasttimes..I especially like the posted photos .. beautiful scenery I will never see...contrast in unsuspected magnificant buildings in remote places and abject poverty in presuambly modern world hot spots..
    I lived in a Silicon Valley neighborhood when early Google Sreet View was being developed and beta tested. The original view of my home lterally allowed someone to look through my kitchen window and see what was on the window shelving. (I lived in a townhouse with a large kitchen window very close to the public access "road" that was right at camera height) Another early feature- posted by someone online- was the ability to read license plates outside of strip clubs and massage parlours.

    I occasional check the "funny street view pics" websites to see some of the unusual or prank stuff people have "street viewed" flashed....

    This "rice belt" does not make sense. California is the second largest rice producer in the US. (Besides, you should avoid rice from the "rice belt" on this map, since it contains mroe arsemic than rice for California or Asian countries.)

    While this point has moved continuously to the West, I am a bit surprised it has not moved more to the South.

    Generally yes. However, I don't think using the word "British" to describe something which is partly not British is universally popular in Ireland.

    some fun maps but I can tell you the one about how many inches of snow it takes to close schools is not accurate, from our experience today. We are in the 12” zone and last night we had 4” of snow and our local school district is closed.
    It could be the case that the state orders every school to close at 12 inches, but each school board has discretion to close at lower accumulations.

    yes, a number of variables, but it seems like around here school officials chicken out awfully easily. I mean, it’s Colorado, and it snows! They also say that they would hate to have school stay in session and have some tragic accident on the roads with a school bus. I kind of get that, but when do you say enough’s enough, put on snow tires, drive safely
