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...

"They are forming like roaches out there," NHC Spokesman! Six Named Storms Line up at Once in Atlantic and Eastern Pacific Basins and Ties Modern Record

Six named tropical storms have lined up and are currently active in the Atlantic and Eastern Pacific basins, equaling the record of combined storms in the two areas at one time. With Humberto now heading northeast into the Atlantic and Kiko heading west toward Hawaii in the Pacific, four new tropical cyclones have formed.

Tropical Depression Imelda could dump the heaviest rainfall Houston has seen from one storm system since Harvey. Imelda is moving slowly northwestward through eastern Texas, with heavy rain extending primarily to the south and east of its circulation centre north of the Gulf Of Mexico.

Meanwhile, Tropical Storm Jerry is intensifying in the Atlantic and will likely move near or north of the Leeward Islands as a hurricane later this week.
Jerry is currently centred more than 600 miles east of the Leeward Islands and is tracking west-northwestward, according to the Weather Channel.

Along the Eastern Pacific Basin, Tropical Cyclone Mario has developed which could threaten the Westcoast of Mexico and the US as well as Tropical Cyclone Lorena.

After checking with colleagues, veteran National Hurricane Center forecaster Eric Blake tweeted that this combined number of active storms in both basins was believed to tie a modern record from September 1992. "They are forming like roaches out there," Blake tweeted Tuesday afternoon.
