What Ike did

Here's "before and after" pictures, respectively, that show the extent of the damage that Ike inflicted on Bolivar Peninsula, a beach resort community that I'd had the occasion to visit on more than a handful of occasions.

Maybe I shouldn't have been this naive, given the wrath inflicted by Katrina three years ago, but it's stunning how vulnerable we all are in the face of Mother Nature. Things seem to be getting more desperate there with each passing day.

And to think: Ike was only a Category 2 storm.
