How We Survived Tropical Storm Fay
We were recently visited by Tropical Storm Fay. What that meant for us was a rainy, windy, stay at home day! So what's a family to do when they can't leave the house for twenty-four hours?
Have fun, of course! There's nothing like a rainy day for some family togetherness!
So, for those of you who've never experienced it, here are some tips for "surviving" the next tropical storm that comes your way:
*make pancakes for breakfast.
*spend lots of time on the computer: photoshop, blogging, facebook, twitter, swagbucks, etc.
*have plenty of iced coffee on hand.
*use the time to blanch and freeze zipper peas.
*play with playdough and watch t.v.
*stay calm when you discover that the wind is blowing so hard that water has pooled in the window sills.
*use micro-fiber cloths to solve the water on sills problem.
*dress up in your rain gear and check on the outside of the house. This will provide much needed exercise and entertainment for overly energetic young boys.
* make a big train track in the living room (I don't know why our son doesn't have his shirt on)
It's really not that hard to survive a tropical storm. All you need is your family and a fun attitude.
