    Isn't that something?

    Cleanup of tornado-swept Iowa town to take months - Yahoo! News
    "Isn't that something?" said Sanford, 92, who bought his house in 1946. "But we're going to fix it. My house will be repaired."

    It means, "Isn't that something remarkable?", "..extraordinary?", "..amazing?".

    In the article he seems to be talking about the devastation in his house and especially the neighbour's chimney lying in his living room.
