Myself, I loving this wind and slight cool air coming off the edges of that Hurricane.
Since Fall taking its lovely time to cool off down here.
Now, that one was a nutty one for sure. Even us down here in Southeast tip of Alabama got rain off that one, plus the clouds extended all the way out to us. That was one crazy Hurricane.
Heck, one of the instructors at Kessler AFB showed us some videos from that. Darn water got all the way to the base and flooded it.
my son was stationed at Keesler during that, he was assigned to supervise one of the shelter, they didn't evacuate the students and the land lines and cell phones were down. he remembered an antenna on the roof and made an autovon call, military sat link to the commercial phone system. bypass long distance charges in the old days. he called me here in Georgia and I gave him weather updates all night. after katrina passed, the tail of the hurricane had reverse flow. after the whole thing passed, the wind were straight in over 100 mph because the pressure was so low it was like a vacumn sucking the air in behind. all of the lumber from houses and other buildings were like toothpicks in the streets.
