Who Won The Week? 9/1/19

10CC3057-4EEA-4C80-B8C1-700C0FC6C906It’s time for another Who Won the Week prompt. The idea behind Who Won the Week is for you to select who you think won this past week. Your selection can be anyone or anything — politicians, celebrities, athletes, authors, bloggers, your friends or family members, books, movies TV shows, businesses, organizations, whatever.

I will be posting this prompt on Sunday mornings (my time). If you want to participate, write your own post designating who you think won the week and why you think they deserve your nod. Then link back to this post and tag you post with FWWTW.

My selection for this week is the state of — and the people of — Florida. All week long, weather forecasters have been saying that Florida was going to get slammed on Monday, by a potential Category 5 hurricane. Well, it turns out that, while Hurricane Dorian is, in fact, a Category 5 hurricane on its way toward Florida, it is now expected to turn northeast. The latest forecasts say Dorian is likely to spare Florida a direct hit, but will move close to the state’s east coast late Monday.A042E828-DC9E-4CF0-90C2-EEE03FE86645That’s good news for the people of Florida and not such good news for those along the coasts of Georgia and the Carolinas.

Truth be told, early forecasts had the storm making landfall in southeast Florida, near Palm Beach. I was kind of hoping that it would stall right on top of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort and destroy the place. Am I bad for hoping for a direct hit? Well, maybe next time.

So tell us. Who do YOU think won the week?

    Although that would be tempting, FEMA would be dispatched in a heartbeat, unlike the past for Puerto Rico and others.

    Dorian slowed down to a crawl moving at only 8 miles an hour and this has allowed for the high pressure ridge to noticeably break down and weaken, and now the experts seem to agree that it will make a turn to the north and towards the east. If it approached faster, it would have likely continued on that western trajectory through Florida. I feel much better, but uncertainty still remains and as Yogi Berra said, “It ain’t over, till it is over”.

    WWTW? Boris Johnson with his suspending the British Parliament. Boris the Buffoon has revealed his more sinister side!

    Tell me about it! Water purchase limited at grocery stores. Lucky to find some fancy Italian spring water. Almost got into a fight over a packet of D batteries. Everyone goes quite bonkers in hurricane season down here. 😳

    One person’s win, is another’s loss. I hope those on the east coast are safe.

    Hey, I think Trump is vying with your choice (and with everyone) — via his sharpie and tweets about Alabama.

      He’s a contender, that’s for sure.
