It's hard to believe such destruction can be so random and so powerful. A series of tornadoes touched down around the Dallas area on December 26th. I spent some time in Rowlett today and saw just a portion of the damage. Even so, I passed hundreds of houses that were either catastrophically damaged or simply ripped down to the foundation. As terrible as it is, after a while I just stopped photographing because the damage was so widespread that broken houses started to all look the same. Here are a few from my walk.
