One of the very visual signs things are getting closer is the fact our street lighting is now on.

After visiting friends Ryan and Suze last night, I took a quick trip down our new street and was pleasantly surprised to see our street lights lit up, glowing bright.

Something I was keen to find out about was how much the street light adjacent to our block would flood light into our bedroom window. While its hard to tell for sure until the house is built, I think, on an early look, that it should be fine.

You can see from the photo below, that while the road is well lit, by the time the light reaches the nature strip it starts to fall off. By the footpath its almost all gone and shortly after, gone completely. This is largely thanks to the orientation of the lights that point straight down.
