Hurricane Season

Updates: Hurricane Natalie weakened to a tropical storm as she made landfall in the southwest corner of the kitchen, leaving a trail of kitchen utensil destruction in her wake. Mommy had been bracing for the storm, and chose to wait it out in a kitchen chair.
"I just don't know if my poor house can withstand this annihilation."

An incident management team of one had been prepositioned to help with clean up and provide first-responder support to his mother.


The busiest part of the Nye household hurricane season is usually in August and September. So far this year, there have been four named storms, two of which became culinary hurricanes. Mom and federal forecasters predict a total of 12 to 16 named storms and forty to sixty hurricanes this season.

How funny is that!? I read the whole thing with a smile on my face. Don't you just love the disaster that comes with a one year old. It's always amazing to me how you can clean all day and yet it is never clean. Those are some cute kiddos you have.

LOL, that was so cleverly written! I can totally relate. It is especially bad when you have two tornados going in different directions, eh? Disasters galore!

I love this post! Yes, they are like little hurricane's. They are very cute though. It seems like for me anyway, that the older one finally starts get easier and then the baby gets harder. Good thing they are soo cute or we might not want to keep then around!

That is so funny. It feels like that is all I ever do is clean up. Good luck with that. Your kids are getting so big. They are really cute. Hope all is well.

I adore you! Why must you be so far away? At least we still get to "connect" this way. We have hurricanes at our house, the sad thing is that they are sometimes named "Hurricane Angie".
