Here’s a few shots of our view during the typhoon…

Friends have posted on their blogs what they do during typhoons, so I thought I’d do the same.

Construction toys…

The towel in the top right is to catch minor leaks or any water that seeps through the concrete.  We also had to stuff handtowels in the window sills because the wind would push the water up and over.  Eventually all the toys were put away and the mats pulled up. 

Piano time…

Okay, so I soon grew tired of snapping pictures of every activity and gave up. We also played with dolls, blocks, fuse beads, food toys, farm toys, cars, made tents, read, cooked, danced, and a bunch of other things that I forget.

At the end of the day Jayden took a bath…

Don’t let the water spray on the outside of the tub concern you, we’ve got a big drain in the floor. Unfortunately only the bathrooms and kitchen have the drain in the floors. In all the other rooms, where there aren’t drains, the windows flooded and the walls and ceilings leaked. It wasn’t a huge mess like we would get in previous typhoons, but it was inconvenient to take care of. But the storm seems to have passed now. Hopefully we’ll be able to get out of the house today as I’m running out of rainy day activities. Do you have special activities you do during rainy days?
