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...

'The first real winter we’ve had in several years'! Nearly 15 inches of snow, 35cm dumped on Chicago killing two with temps below 0 deg F (-18 C)

'The first real winter we’ve had in several years'
Nearly 15 inches of snow, 35cm and killing at least two people hit the US Midwest on Friday bringing chaos and snarling hundreds of flights as it rolled east to threaten New York state and New England.
The Chicago area had its heaviest snowfall since 2016 as the storm put an icy grip on much of Wisconsin, northern Illinois and Michigan.
According to Reuters, Weather forecasters in Detroit warned that snowfall there could surpass one inch (2.5 cm) an hour as the system headed east.
”This is the first real winter we’ve had in several years.” claimed a Chicago resident.
Wind chill temperatures were expected to drop below 0 Fahrenheit (minus 18 C) in many areas across the upper Midwest.
The central and northern Rockies also will see heavy snow, the National Weather Service said.
National Weather Service meteorologist Brian Hurley said on Friday that the system was likely to drop another four or five inches (10 or 12.5 cm) of snow on the Midwest as it headed east toward New England.
The storm could dump up to a foot (30 cm) of snow in New York state as it picks up moisture off the Great Lakes, he added.
