This was how a tornado left a house in Willie Nelson's Texan town of Luck.
It was one of many buildings destroyed or damaged in extreme weather, which fortunately did not injure anyone.
The 81-year-old country music singer and songwriter shared pictures of the devastation on Facebook on Monday.
He wrote: "Our beautiful Luck wasnt so Lucky recently.
"Last weeks tornado force winds ripped several buildings apart, including the bank, the post office, and left World Headquarters holding on by a splinter.
"We are happy to report no one was hurt and the church only had a few windows blown out.
"Some towns got it a lot worse, so we aren't complaining. Luck is a tough town. It can be rebuilt."
