|It's like War of the Worlds*!
*The Cruise version is crap. Seriously, it's possibly the most pointless movie ever made.
|Curiously, some houses were inexplicably left standing in the midst of the rubble much like in the midwest where those intelligently-designed tornados randomly pick off some houses and leave others standing.|
|It was pretty hard to investigate though since they wrapped the place with a six-foot fence all the way around. That seems like a waste considering they were only protecting debris by that point. Why wasn't this up when there were intact houses?|
|Rows of beaver houses remain where human houses once stood.|
|This building may have been the PX or a clinic or something. For some reason it stood for quite a while after most of the homes were torn down.|
|The chain link fence replaced the wooden fence that was falling down for probably years before the subdivision was abandoned.|
|I mentioned in the previous gallery that the power lines had been removed. Similarly, the transformers were gone, and apparently this is where they ended up: at the corner of the subdivision across from the PX or whatever that was.|
|You can definitely see the encroaching landfill now where progress (i.e., Wal-mart and co.) continued to roll in.|
|Was this swing set spared because demolition crews are sentimental or because they are artists with a profound sense of irony?|
|Goodbye, houses. Hello, fenced-in piles of rubble.|
