I realize that...take away the storm surge and the wind damage was pretty much normal for a cat 1 storm...in other words no big deal...

Take away the storm surge and ordinary flooding throughout the region was enough to create billions in damages.
I rode it out at home ~ went through the 'wind wall' (no true eyewall with this one) twice ~
Worst storm we ever had here was a nearly spent hurricane turned tropical storm called AGNES. It sat over the Appalachians just over yonder for several days and created massive floods that took out steel bridges anchored to bedrock.
If you want wind try a tornado ~ that's real wind!
