Nice, Very Nice.

The post card of the blizzard of 1912 is pretty cool. Also love the map showing the location of my fellow cyburbianites.

Keep up the good work.

Very cool SAC!
I live only a few blocks from one of the postcard locations and walk past others on a daily basis. Very interesting to see that changes that have occured.
The Cyburbia North America map is also a neat extension of Cardinal's Where Are You thread.

Thanks for all the feedback so far.

I have added a few of you to the weather page that weren't on it before, but the dotmap will take a little while longer. Look for me to update it by the end of the week.

Repo and JNA - you are next in the pipeline for Postcards. BTW, I have a couple of old names for Milwaukee: Jfortin and bturk. Are these guys still around? Did they change their Username?

Josh. I will be adding a couple of more scenes of the Mall in K-Zoo. I just picked up a couple of nice postcards. BTW, when I was last in K-Zoo in 1998 they were talking about closing the mall and bringing back cars. Is this true?

The map, postcards & weather are really cool!!

I don't have a dot yet, but there's a couple of options for me. I'm a student at Texas State in San Marcos, TX but I work in Bulverde, TX, which is about 45miles WSW of San Marcos. It might be easier just to tack me on San Marcos with Runner.

Again, this is awesome!! :) :) :) :)

Yes indeed they did open up the Mall to traffic. They included a snow melt system so shoppers and downtown workers can get around feely in the winter. The businesses seem to be doing alright as a result.

I have uploaded a couple pictures into the Cybubia Gallery of the new Mall

Thanks SAC. I can't believe you found a Lake Keesus Hotel postcard. Sadly, the Lake Keesus Hotel is long gone. It was Kandler's on Keesus for a long time - a popular watering hole/restaurant. It was the one place I was dying to and drink at when I turned 21. Unfortunatly some developer bought it up and built some pricy codos before I could get there.
