Doom Jr. Baby Hurricane Plush by mintconspiracy Doom Jr. Baby Hurricane Plush by mintconspiracy
Here on Florida's Gulf Coast, we're used to a minimum of two or three major hurricane scares a year. I've been through more storms than I can name, and I've gotten used to seeing that little red swirly symbol pop up on the weather maps during the local news.

This plushie, handsewn from red fleece, is based on that traditional meteorological hurricane symbol. Despite his name, though, Doom Jr. is quite harmless. At four inches high and four and a half inches across, he's incapable of uprooting trees, flooding the neighborhood, or even raising the roof. He's content to sit around and look tough (and he's not even very good at that, thanks to his cute little face).

[Looking for plushies? Anything I have for sale is available in my Etsy shop.]

Oh yeah, I remember Andrew. I was on the Gulf coast of FL for that one, too, so it came across and hit us after it hit you. We have video of our two-story screen enclosure being blown to bits.

Thanks! :)

Hahaa, exactly. The last couple of seasons were so active, and then Chris popped up this week and was headed toward me -- at this point, it's just like, "Argh, not again!" There needed to be a friendlier version of that little red blip. ;)

(Best of luck for the rest of this hurricane season, by the way!)
