We thought...

that Hurricane Alex had gone for good. But no. I guess he wanted to stay with us for some more time and yesterday morning we woke up to see our street...


It was until the afternoon that we could go out for a walkie...

Fresh flowers...

I saw some of the doggies...

In barking mode... as always

I am tired. Can we go back home... please??


I enjoyed a lot reading your posts about your names!
Some of the ones I remember and that have anothere meaning in spanish are:

Bobo - Silly
Moco - Booger
Mona - Doll
In Spain, the sun is called Lorenzo


Have a good night

Woof! Woof! Glad you were able to go for an afternoon walk. As always, you're well dressed. Mmm not sure why are those dogs bark at you ... one of them kind a look like me. We also enjoyed everyone's post about their NAMES ... We hope that we visited everyone who participated. I say I'm exhausted n ready for a Tasty Treat --- Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

All that rain in here in the KC area now. Actually it has stopped for now. We are sorry to see your street flooded but happy to see you got to have a walkie.

We also enjoyed all the name game posts - made for some very interesting reading.

Have a great week.

Glad to see your flooded streets dried up enough for you to go on your walkie, Lorenza! As always, you look beautiful!

Sam said...

So, does "Lorenza" mean sun, too?

We haven't been around enough lately to pawticipate in the name game - but it sure has been fun reading other people's stories!

I hope your town is getting back to normal now after Alex ravaged through it!

houndstooth said...

I am sorry the storm is still plaguing you! It was so hot that we had to shorten our walk tonight by quite a bit, too!


Huffle Mawson said...

I didn't do the name game because someone can't remember these things ahead of time. I hope you were not flooded Lorenza!

Bond said...

Hi Lorenza,

I apologise for this request, but I need some help as I am sick.

You can help me by directing some traffic to my blog and hopefully, one of your readers is able to help me.

A million thanks in advance.


Bae Bae said...

Oh.. I hope you get better weather soon..

Are those other doggies friendly?

the 4 Bs said...

hi Lorenza, that is a lot of water on your street! did your mom take you swimming on the street? that would be funny! we're glad that all of the water went away. we hope it didn't go inside of your house.


Au and Target said...

Eeek floods! We have them often and they're a pain. Mexican Spanish is very different from Spanish Spanish!

Huskee and Hershey said...

Oh no.. the flooding looks bad! It looks like a giant pond.. It's nice that you managed to go out for a walkie and sniff some pretty flowers!

ocmist said...

Gee, Lorenza, we hope that it isn't to hot with all that rain. That would be way to HUMID to even breathe, let alone go for a walk. All your "friends" were probably just glad that they could get out for a few minutes without being rained on and wanted to tell you about it! :) The CCC

What! It looks like we are the first to comment tonight! Hurray!

Mango said...

Your street is a total big swimming pool. Oh dear! I am glad you were able to get in a walkie.


Mack said...

Looks like you got as much rain as us! No fun!


Madi and Mom said...

Lorenza we are so glad the street flooding cleared up. Boy that must have been scary to see that much water so close. Alex has overstayed he needs to move on.

Another lovely dress. Madi and I hope your week is full of clear skies and warm (not hot) sun.
Madi and Mom

Life With Dogs said...

I think you definitely should turn right back around. You already have a new pool, no need to swim in the streets! :)

DoDo and MoMo said...

Cheryl, Indiana, Shingo and Molly said...

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

That flooding does look bad. :(
We are glad you got to go for your walkie still.

We hope the nasty weather goes away soon.

We also hope this comment gets through, blogger is playing up today.

JB's Big and Small Worlds said...

Alex made it to you too? Hope the water went down quickly and you could have a good walkie!

Eric said...

Maggie and Mitch said...

That's a lot of water to get rid of, Lorenza! We hope Alex is gone for good!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Lola said...

I'm glad it finally stopped. I hope mean old Alex leaves you alone. And I hope he doesn't have too many friends either. It's so early for hurricanes to hit North America, isn't it? Makes one worry, but I guess there's not too much point in that. Anyway, I'm very glad you got your walk in.

wags, Lola

Sagira said...

You have your very own lake in your street, go swiming! :)

River said...

We're glad Alex has left! That was a lot of water. You have a lot of doggies to visit there.

love & wags,

Kari in WeHo said...

that mean Alex needs to leave you alone already!

Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

Ah, I missed the name game! Sorry to hear about floods in your least it didn't do much harm to your homes (I hope!)!


Ike said...

I am so sorry about your street! I hope everything is ok!

Teddy said...

Wow, that was quite a flood! I'm surprised it all drained away so quickly...just in time for your walk!

Deefor said...

That's a lot of water. Where did it all go? I read about your name and I think it's a great story. And a great name.


Marg said...

Sure glad you didn't get totally flooded out and that you got a little walk in. We enjoyed that name game too. Next time we will join it too.
Have a great day.

Dennis the Vizsla said...

Alex! Quit bothering Lorenza!

Penny and Patches said...

Holy moly! We hope Alex is all gone now so you can get back to all your walkies!

How you got your name is kind like how I, Patches, got my name. When Mom was getting ready to bring me home, she had a list of "P" names and our dad asked her when she was going to get Patches. Mom didn't even have THAT name on her list!

Penny & Patches

Bailey said...

I am glad you are OK! Another cute dress, too!

It is too hot for walkies, here - you are lucky!

Daisy said...

I'm sorry you got so much rain, but I am glad you were still able to go for a late afternoon walkie!

Mochi and Mommy said...

I hope you weather is all better! I'm glad you finally got your walk!

My mom forgot about the name game.


kalyxcorn said...

Mayzie said...

Ohmidogness! I'm Most Glad you didn't float away! AND that you gots to go for a walkie later on. I always smile real big whenever I see you all dressed up in one of your pretty dresses walking down the street.

Wiggles & Wags,

The Army of Four said...

That's way too much water! Did it cool things off at all?

Deborah said...

WOW, a lot of water! Glad you guys are ok with the hurricane. A lot of doggies more than likely thinking how pretty your are! I like your name, I never new that!

C said...

thanks...we NEED to know how to say booger in Spanish... :( It was over 100F today here and we cannot take it. There is NO rain and everything is getting greenery ... fire danger. Crazy no?

Flo de Sendai said...

I'm glad Alex finally went away. He does not look like a nice visitor leaving all his mess behind!
