I just thought I'd mention, since I'm the one living in the southeast and all, that Ivan did in fact rain down destruction on one near the jihad. Even way the hell inland in Atlanta, we got about 5 inches of rain, and any wimpy trees not felled by Frances came down. Some traffic lights on Highway 41 in Fulton Country are still out as of today. I think that just about every school in the metro area closed, except for the ones in the city. Georgia Tech, of course, isn't exactly a good metric for the severity of weather, since they closed due to snow all of once during my stay there, and snow was bad enough to close roads several more times than that.
Basically, what I'm saying is that it rained a lot. And winded, too. And nearly sank New Orleans, but turned away at the last minute.
