You’ve got to admit it is pretty surreal. Devastating. In a fascinating sort of way.
Lots of fairly high res photos of the damage done by Ike in Texas.
More (smaller) here, tho some of the same ones repeated.

Imagine losing everything like that. You can’t help wondering why people build – again and again – in high risk areas like that. And you figure that there are probably loads of reasons – mostly that they can’t afford otherwise I guess.

And you feel hella grateful for not living somewhere like that. Seriously! 😐
Which reminds me, I need to buy an external hard drive to back up my files. *lol*1

1. this *lol* reads as a sort of sarcastic commentary. You know, the way a person may exclaim “ha!” in conversation.

You should do more annotations in your entry. It gives me a buzz, just like annotated Simpsons comics. (Sorry, I’ve read too much secondary literature in the last few months. And too much decadent literature, particularly too much “A Rebours”.)

Oh, I meant “in your entries”. Not just in this one.
