Despite having two garage sales on our street, the map of garages sales has not identified our street: Murray Way. It is just off Loma Verde between Ross and Louis. We promise it is not a Bermuda Triangle or black hole.

Odd omission of street name. It's a Google Map application. Google knows where Murray Way is. A Search will find it. Somehow Google's algorithm that figures out how to overlay the name, dependent on map scale, isn't figuring out this one. I've flagged it to Google, at their "Report a problem" link. We'll see whether it gets fixed and when.
