I don't believe I implied that such things were absolutely positively impossible and had totally zero chance of ever occurring.
I merely meant to say that the media was hyping the storm.
But I guess you disagree.
Experience disagrees. You can parse it however you like, but most of our state was without power for at least 3 days and much of it 5-7 days. And it was a weak cat 1 when it hit our shores.
Since you don’t have a location in your profile, what does your experience tell you? How many cat 1’s in heavily wooded areas already soggy with rain have you experienced?
We had a guy in my county die of west nile virus the other day. When the disease first appeared you would think it was going to be like “The Stand” with millions dead in the streets.
Turned out that the guy who died the other day was in his 70s and had emphysema.
