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...

Breaking News: Oroville Dam spillway has been compromised and is breaking up: Whole section of concrete has been washed away and huge cracks appearing.


Live streaming of the Oroville Dam is suggesting the spillway has been compromised and a whole section of concrete has been washed away.
A large breach can be seen in the concrete slipway with a huge crack opening up further down
Residents are nervously watching the Oroville Dam and have packed their bags prepared to evacuate again if necessary.
Another area of concern is the Don Pedro reservoir, which officials said was at 98 percent capacity on Sunday. The reservoir captures water from the Tuolumne River.
In Stanislaus County, where the Don Pedro Reservoir is forecast to reach capacity by Tuesday, authorities are warning residents along the Tuolumne River 45 miles away in Modesto to consider evacuating voluntarily until the flood danger is past.

Sacramento Bee.com claims the town of Maxwell is flooded and two stretches of Interstate 5 north of Williams were barely passable because of encroaching waters. Roads throughout the region were closed from flooding and mudslides. Reclamation districts patrolled levees, monitoring boils and sandbagging.
In Colusa County, the Sheriff’s Office blamed local creeks and canals for the widespread flooding “due to the overabundance of water the last 24 hours” and announced “voluntary evacuations for those who felt their safety was at risk.”
Another Northern California reservoir is at full capacity as a new "Weather Bomb" is pounding the area: Flooding is inevitable as another 6 inches of rain expected.
Storms will resume their track across the region following a brief break from heavy precipitation to start the weekend.

Precipitation will become more widespread and heavy throughout Monday, with the heaviest rain expected to slam Northern California.

Oroville dam is damned ( done for ).

The spillway is not the dam. The spillway is damaged but the dam is OK. The most serious problem was the emergency spillway. That is no longer being used. IMHO the dam will hold unless a big earthquake happens near it.

Here's an image of why it's possible that the dam could actually collapse. http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-02-13/oroville-dam-drains-problem-remains-leaving-evacuees-limbo
