Who Won The Week — 09/18/22

The idea behind Who Won the Week is to give you the opportunity to select who (or what) 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.

This week’s recipient of Who Won the Week recipient is not a who, but a what. It’s rain.

For the first time in more than six months we got some measurable rain this morning. It wasn’t much — less than a quarter of an inch — but given the severe drought we are experiencing, every little bit helps. And we’re supposed to get an additional quarter inch of rain within the next 24 hours.

So what’s the big deal? Well, as mentioned, we in Northern California are in a severe drought. We essentially have two seasons here: the rainy reason from November through March and the dry season from April through October. Getting any rain in September is highly unusual.

December, January and February are typically the wettest months, with 75 percent of the state’s annual precipitation within those months. Unfortunately, for the last few years, the typical amount of rain we have gotten during the “rainy season” has fallen way below average, which is why we’re in the shape we’re in.

So yeah, even getting just a half inch of rain in September is something to celebrate.

So who (or what) do you think won the week?

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.

    Yes — definitely the rain won the week — not only did it give us a little moisture and hope that there might be more somewhere in the atmosphere, but also it cooled us down to more livable temperatures! Rain, rain, come again!

    Yay for the rains. You can have some of ours too. We have had a lot of surplus.

    We’ve gotten rain and the weather has cooled down to bearable. We also have some more rain on the way and hopefully, we’ll have a real autumn this year after all.

      It rained here on and off most of the day and, as of a few minutes ago (still drizzling) we had gotten 4/10th of an inch with a little more expected overnight. It wasn’t that much, but it helped at least a little.

        That was our first rain … almost exactly 4/10ths of an inch. The next rain did better and the last one gave us almost 2.5 inches. Now, there are hurricanes jogging up the east coast, so I think we’ll be well set for rain, at least until the hurricane season ends. What a pity we can’t just move weather around so we all get what we need!

      A second opinion is well worth the effort. Best of luck.
