And then there was one.

In the aftermath of Hurricane Ike, it's hard to believe how much damage a little wind can cause. But when that wind picks up momentum and begins to spin at about 100 miles per hour over the open water, it can do pretty much anything it wants to! Including flood, or destroy, entire towns.
I was planning to take a trip down to Galveston Beach before the end of the summer to enjoy the restaurants and views from the Sea Wall. Looks like that trip will have to wait for quite some time now. This is what much of the coast looks like now.

Can you even imagine? Everything is gone.

Except this one house.
Makes you wonder who that lucky person is...

...and if they're really all that lucky afterall.

My thoughts and prayers go out to all those affected by Ike.
