WHAT A DIFFERENCE 7 YEARS MAKES


Seven years ago a storm named Katrina had the Gulf Coast on edge in anticipation of where it would make landfall. Grocery stores shelves were empty, gas lines were long, the interstate was crowded and hotels were booked solid. Tropical storm Isaac is expected to make landfall on Wednesday, August 29th, the exact day Katrina did seven years ago and we're seeing some of the same anxiety. Isaac is only projected to become a category one storm at best, and once again grocery stores shelves are empty there are long lines at the pumps, hotels are booked solid. If it stays on it's current track I think the interstates will become crowded once more.

My point is Hurricane Katrina has given us a whole new awareness of how dangerous these storms can be. Remember before Katrina it was not uncommon for people to throw a Hurricane party when a category one or lesser storm was threatening us.

Team USA is celebrating a fantastic performance in London. The United States won the most medals overall, (104) and the most gold medals, (46). It was a record breaking opening ceremony and organizers estimated that at least 300 million people around the world watched the closing ceremony. Now it' on to Rio. That's where the next Summer Olympics will be taking place in four years.

NFL Makes History With It's First Female Referee
Say hello to Shannon Eastin. She will be officiating the pre-season football game between the Green Bay Packers and the San Diego Chargers this Thursday night in prime time. It will be the first time an NFL game has had a woman on the field as a referee. Shannon is currently a college referee who has worked in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, and is working as one of the replacement officials who have been locked out by the league.



We'll see if Shannon Eastin has what it takes to be an NFL referee Thursday night around 7:00pm on ESPN. Of course most of us will be watching the Saints against the New England Patriots.
