Where's Santa?

reindeerevan.jpgGone are the days of radio updates of where Santa is, now we can get REAL-TIME on your fat-man tracking.

First, you can visit NORAD’s web site for tracking Santa that is in 5 languages and features a map that updates every few minutes. Second, they have a link to a kml file for Google Earth so you can track Santa in 3D. I had fun with my daughter this morning showing her the difference of where we are vs where Santa is right now using Google Earth.

Not following Santa, but fun just the same… For those of us around Chicago, if you’re jonesing for some Holiday lights check out Chicagoloand Christmas Lights. Its main feature is a color coded Google map of 216+ well decorated houses around the Chicago area.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from everyone at CRT!

    As for the xmas lights, I really could have used that to show the GF some neighborhood houses, sadly at the time I couldn’t remember the addresses, I will tag this for next year. Thanks.
