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.

Forecasters have said this could be “one of greatest snow events in decades”.
Winter Storm Maya arrived in the Northwest of the US, Friday.
Washington State is bracing for its second snowstorm this weekend and meteorologists are forecasting yet another to hit next week, leaving Washington Gov. Jay Inslee to declare a state of emergency as Maya arrived yesterday.
According to the Weather Channel, Seattle and other parts of Washington and the Pacific Northwest felt the full wrath of Winter Storm Maya as heavy snow fell Friday. In Washington, Gov. Jay Inslee declared a state of emergency as conditions worsened Friday afternoon.
"Weather forecasters predict this may be a storm unlike one we've seen in many years," the governor said in the release.
Up to half a foot of snow is possible from the Friday-Saturday storm throughout the region.
Officials say travel could be very difficult and that blowing snow could contribute to reduced visibility.
According to the Daily Express, earlier this week, Seattle was hit by the first snowstorm, with 2.7 inches blanketing the region - up from the 0.7 inches on average for February. meteorologist Ryan Maue said: “This February in Seattle is going to be remembered for brutal winter weather for many folks not used to it.”
In Portland, the other major city in the Pacific Northwest, 1 to 4 inches of snow is expected.
Snow and cold are also forecast for interior Oregon and Washington as well as for much of northern California, the National Weather Service said.
