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.

Tropical Cyclone Carlos (04S) ends 6 month drought of tropical cyclone formation in the Western part of Southern Indian Ocean

On Feb. 6 at 09:45 UTC: (4:45 a.m. EST) NASA's Aqua satellite captured this visible image of Tropical Cyclone Carlos (04S) over La Reunion and Mauritius. Credits: NASA Goddard MODIS

Rapid Response Team NASA's Aqua satellite passed over Tropical Cyclone Carlos when it was affecting La Reunion and Mauritius islands in the Southern Indian Ocean.
The satellite imagery provided a clear picture of how wind shear was affecting the storm.
Earlier the GPM core satellite found heavy rain and towering storms within Tropical Cyclone Carlos. Tropical Cyclone 04S formed north of La Reunion Island on February 4 and continued to track slowly toward the island.
This ended an unusual drought of tropical cyclone formation in that part of the Indian Ocean that began in July 2016.
When NASA's Terra passed over the newly-formed tropical cyclone imagery showed a concentration of strong thunderstorms around the center of the compact storm.
The storm was later renamed Tropical Cyclone Carlos.
