    It has been right at a year that Hurricane Ike blew through Galveston and headed toward my house. The next day, I had more concerns than taking photos of the local destruction. Just consider for a moment the consequences if a storm the size of Ike were to come up the Thames into London and then still have enough power to travel to Bath and cause destruction there, and with climate change as it is, there could exist that real possibility and it did happen at one time, which I discussed in the Milford Haven GigaPan comments: gigapan.org/viewGigapan.php?id=2941 9Note: A Google search brought up this information concerning the path of Ike as well as some very interesting photos : tinyurl.com/nuqfa7 Will open in

    Forty THOUSAND trees? OMG that's terrible. Ok, nothing like as bad as the loss of life and hardship suffered by human victims of Ike, but still, that sort of statistic helps to put things into perspective for someone like me who has no idea of what a hurricane is like.

    If you go to page two of the following link (actually, the entire article is extremely interesting), you will read that salwater got to the roots of 40,000 oak trees in Galveston and will have to be cut down: www.houstonpress.com/2009-09-10/ne ws/life-post-ike Will open in

On a personal note, seeing this first-hand and up-close may be heartbreaking to me.

    You're right - the trees do not look well. What is the problem? That the land was doused by salt water by Ike?
