Well that makes me happy that they upgraded her, because Emily did look so perfectly formed for that short time south of Cuba.
It was interesting they didn't go into that strange weakening phase prior to the Yucatan landfall, that was so weird: "Emily began to slowly weaken...this time in the absence of concentric eyewalls but also without any obvious external synoptic forcing." Remember the storm structure just went splat! all of a sudden, like two left feet or something.
HF that really does put things in perspective. Not having followed hurricanes very long, I didn't realize. Hard to do, but your statement makes the 2005 season even more dramatic, in retrospect.
