Mom emailed last night and told us. She also asked us not to say anything to Grandpa about it - she doesn't want him to know.
I knew it would happen. They lived in the middle of Microsoft land and all around them rich people were buying up nice, normal houses and tearing them down and building huge monstrocities that totally filled up the lots. My grandparents' house stuck out like a sore thumb, and not just because the trim (and there was a lot of it) was painted Pepto pink.
I'm really bummed about it, and I wish I could have driven past it one last time.
But, I guess I can still visit it on Google Earth, until, of course, they update their photos.
Time marches on...
