Yesterday afternoon, Santos was going to play a game that would decide if they came into the play-offs. So, my mom put me on my Santos dress to go out for my walkie. She told me that we were going to have a short walkie because it was very windy. While we were getting ready it started raining.



And then... hail... big ice balls...

The roof of my house...

And the patio....

And I waited... and waited... and waited...

And of course... minutes later we were "powerless"!
No lights, no internet, nothing!
By 9:30 we were sleeping!

We could not watch the game but this morning we knew they won, scoring in the very last minute!

Today afternoon finally I went out for my walkie, I already had my dinner and now I am ready to visit your blogs!


Have a good night

OH MY!!! I didn't know it does that in Mexico?!!! Mr. Blues says he wants to eat all the ice. YUMMY!!
I just want to roll in it. Glad you got to go for your walk. Also glad your team won. Lorenza, how do we get on your friends list? Let me know and we'll do it. Much love! Woof! Josie and Mr. Blues, Jr.

Stella said...

Did it thunder and lightening too, when it hailed? That is a lot of hail and I wonder how long it took to melt away?

Yes, I am sure your Santos dress brought your team luck, Lorenza! You look very cute in it.


Lola said...

Oh, Lorenza, that's some terrible weather. I don't like hail, but I don't think I've ever seen that much of it in one place. I'm glad you're OK and your internet and power are all back.

wags, Lola

Hail?? Wow... Sorry that your walkie got postponed and your power was cut!! (But well at least your team won, so it isn't that bad...)

Huskee and Hershey said...

One question, do you think if they poured some syrup/jam/honey on the ice balls, they'd be like ice-cream?? Hmmm....

Teddy Bear said...

Yayyyy for Santos. Did you have lots of candles to light up your house? We had lots of hail today too but the sun came out and took it away before Mommy could get a picture.

I didn't know Mexico was cold enough to get that much hail! Wow! Lorenza, it's like you were transported to the Arctic for a little while there. Well, I'm glad that's over with!



WOW that was alot of hail! Good thing you have a nice winter sweater to put on! That was crazy. Now time to make a margarita with that stuff.

Quanto granizo! Acho que o seu vestido trouxe sorte ao Santos =)
Tenha uma boa noite.

ocmist said...

That was a lot of hail! I didn't know that it was that cold that far south from here and it wasn't that cold here! Tonight, though, it did get cold and they say it was snowing on the hills just above us.

Your new dress is very pretty, Sweet Lorenza! I hope you enjoyed our Date as much as I did! Sweet dreams pretty lady! BG

Good evening lorenza
Hail is scared.
And, the weather is eerie all over the world.
Japan becomes cold, and becomes hot, too.
Earnestly, going out takes care.

Sunshade said...

OMG hail storm in Mexico??? Did you like the taste of those mini ice balls Lorenza???

You're so cute in your new dress. Does your mom make them herself? They're all so nice!

Thank you for your get well wishes, I hope the stem cells work too!!!

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

bbes tribe said...

WOW! That just isn't right. To ruin your walkie when you were so beautifully dressed up for it. Maybe raingear & boots would have worked better.

Alli and Frankie said...

Oh, no! Wow - that looks like snow! I'm sorry you had to wait until the next day for your walk.

Mochi and Mommy said...

Whoa, hail is scary, but I would want to eat it! :)


Sam said...

We are sorry to hear that you could not enjoy your walk! Your dress is very cute.


Mango said...

Lorenza! You are always getting crazy weather at your estate. I was scared to see the water coming right in through the door. And then you lost power? Again?

Yuh, I would have gone to bed early too.


Jemma the Chihuahua said...

Oh Lorenza, that didn't sound like a very good day at all.

sonia a. mascaro said...

Wow! What a lot of hail, Lorenza! "Chuva de pedras ou granizo", as Brazilians people says.
I am glad you are well and your power and connection are back.

I always love to seeing and reading your adventures! You always make my day! In Portuguese, "Você sempre alegra o meu dia!"

Hi, Lorenza -

Hail in Mexico? It almost looks like hail that we get here in CT and NH.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci
