The tempest

There are only a handful of days when I can walk outside and hear the fury of Lake Erie a half-mile from my home. This morning is one of them. As I walked in darkness to get the paper I could hear the tempest of wind and waves usually reserved for a November day.

It's nothing, however, compared to the death, destruction and devastation wrought along the path of Hurricane Katrina. I said another silent prayer for the folks along the Gulf Coast. Some of the most amazing photos taken largely by AP photographers could be seen here. The images on television news are also compelling but unlike the still images, don't pause long enough to show you the faces of the people...
