Quote:Isabele wasn't much of a storm either and we lost power for 3 days while others went months without. I think we had 35-40 mph winds. When I went driving out the next day it looked like a war zone out there. You would think a cat. 3 came through. I think Isabele was nothing but a depression. And yes I prepared for a power outage just in case. With the heavy rains we've been having the past few days it wouldn't surprise me if we don't see some of the same patterns of Isabele. In any case friday is suppose to be the worse for us here in Va. So I guess we will see what happens. Good night.

Isabelle was a Cat 5 at one point and a strong 2 at landfall. http://www.wunderground.com/hurricane/at200309.asp

With that said, we stray from the original point. Cat 1 hurricanes RARELY cause substantial grid damage. Tree limbs on power lines don't qualify and that is the major cause of power outages in weak storms.

When Isabele hit my area in Va it was a depression. But because of all the rain we had prior to the storm. The ground was already saturated. It looked like a cat 3 came through but I no it was nothing but a depression. Heck my husband was sitting outside when it was windy. It really wasn't all that bad. But the damage was so unreal. Ernesto could cause the same damage. We had been getting rain through here prior to Ernesto. It looks like oceanfront property where I live. Lol My husband is driving out in all this mess. Hes on a service call fixing someones computer. Not me the rain & wind looks nice indoors.

Waves are crashing against your boat, the lightening strikes and the rain falls. 'The winds begin to blow tossing your boat to and fro. When suddenly you awake knowing it was just a dream. Windy
