Marching On Together


Marching On Together I have had a romance with a lady since my childhood just like thousands of other people around the world who are also in love with her. I have remained in love with her through the many bad times and the few good times, my love for her has never faltered and never will. My lady's name is Leeds United and she is just five games away from returning to the English Football Premiership, after sixteen years in the football wilderness. In the sixties, seventies and early nineties my lady was known as "Super Leeds," however in 2003, my love was relegated from the English Football Premiership due to financial miss-handling by her owners. "Super Leeds," dropped down to the third tier of English football. If Leeds United can grab ten points from their last five games my lady will be back where she belongs in the higher echelons of English football and I can once more embrace my love with happiness.

Leeds 5 v 0 Stoke, 7 points needed from 4 games... Swansea City 0 v 1 Leeds United, 4 points needed from 3 games...

Tropical storm Adrian and tropical cyclone Donna along with a massive Coronal hole on the Sun influence two major quakes within days of each other

USGS

  • The mag 6.2 quake El Salvador came on the heels of tropical storm Adrian
  • The mag 6.8 quake Vanuatu came on the heels of tropical cyclone Donna
  • Both quakes influenced by Coronal hole on the Sun

A shallow magnitude 6.2 - 79km SSW of Acajutla, El Salvador is the 7th major quake of May and the 31st of a record breaking low count so far in 2017.
Interesting to note the quake occured almost exactly in the same area where tropical storm Adrian formed 24 hours earlier.

Above tropical storm Adrian rapidly strengthened on Tuesday, becoming the earliest tropical depression and tropical storm on record in the eastern Pacific Ocean since reliable data began in 1966. Full story here

Which is exactly what happened on Tuesday the 9th of May, when the magnitude 6.8 hit Vanuatu just hours after the category 3 tropical cyclone Donna had hit the islands.

Another big Coronal hole has emerged on the Sun’s south eastern limb, and is now facing Earth

Solar wind flowing from this coronal hole should reach Earth on May 15-16. Credit: NASA/SDO.
