Who Won The Week? 12/1/19

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 pick for this week is Mother Nature.

The headline in today’s newspaper read, “Storm Sweeps in with Rain, Snow, and Gusty Winds.” Normally I would look at that headline and think it was bad news. But for those of us who live in Northern California, it’s just the opposite. The first significant rains in months in the region have extinguished most of the wildfires that have plagued the area, which had caused mass power outages and evacuation orders in many communities. The rains coming in this week should finish the job.

So Mother Nature was able to quickly accomplish what mere mortals were unable to do. And for that, those of us who have had to deal with these destructive wildfires are grateful.

But looking at the forecast, I’m wondering if Mother Nature May be going a bit overboard.816BA0E8-B1A2-4CAF-A62B-8DE26351A170Thanks for dousing the wildfires, Mother Nature, but how about giving it a rest now that the fires have been doused?

And now it’s your turn, folks. Who (or what) do you think won the week?

    I have to nominate my 20 year old grandson who braved the snowy iced sidewalks getting me to a Thanksgiving. Yesterday he came home at 10 a.m. after working snow for 11 hours. And it is cold here!

    He heard nothing of the fires these last few weeks, so I had mistakenly assumed that the threat had subsided.

    I was going to write a post of my own but it is evening here and nearly time to eat. Excuses, excuses. My post was along the lines of our Probation Service. The guy who just knifed two people to death on London Bridge was originally locked up for being part of a terrorist plot, but was released early because it was felt he was not a danger to society. Oh, shit, did you say winner?
