Woman makes sweet discovery on Google Street View outside her old family home

News

Many of us have spent some time on Google Earth – which lets you zoom down streets the other side of the globe from the comfort of the sofa.

The cars that capture the scenery sometimes pick up more than just the architecture or everyday ongoings.

One woman discovered a rather sweet memory locked in time after looking at her grandmother’s house.

She died in 2019 – but on Google Earth, she can be seen sitting outside the property.

The woman shared a video of the sweet moment, adding: “My grandma passed away in 2019 but on Google Earth she’s sitting outside enjoying a nice summer day.”

Her video has been viewed more than 300,000 times since being shared on TikTok.

It prompted others to take a look at their homes – and one person found a relative lost during the pandemic.

They commented: “My grandpa is mowing the lawn.

“Covid got him last week. Thanks for the idea it made me happy to see him.”

Another replied: “My grandfather passed away two years ago.

“I just looked up my grandparents address and saw him in their driveway. Thank you for posting this.”

A third added: “Not seen my mom in over a year, she is on her porch on Google Earth from 2019.”

A fourth replied: “My heart wasn’t ready for this.”

Meanwhile, a mum was left in stitches after her daughter told her what she’d been up to that day at school.

Mum Grace was left doubled over in laughter – but also feeling fairly mortified, after her daughter informed her that her thong accidentally got stuck to her six-year-old’s velcro shoes.

Not only did she send her daughter to school with her underwear, but the cheeky six-year-old also made sure everyone knew about it.
