I don't understand why the media is calling it a superstorm. I mean, its only a category 1. Thats almost nothing.


i know, a cat 1 is nothing, but if i recall correctly it's the size of it "800 miles wide" from what i heard.

If it were a Cat 3, then I would call it a superstorm!

And 800 miles is huge, I don't recall a hurricane that big that made landfall in recent past, though without any strength, I don't think it really qualifies.

But I'm sure there are those here that remember 2005, now that was a year for hurricanes.

From the way the media spoke about it, you would think all of us were going to die. I'm not going to speak on the rest of the country, yet where I live nothing serious happened.

I mean, yeah there were some fallen trees, but other than that we didn't suffer much. The power went out once, than came back on 20 seconds later.
