This is an attempt to come up with a micro-blogged meme.
I thought about Nash Wednesday after I went to an Ash Wednesday Mass at my church in Gulfport.
I suppose no Nash Wednesday exists other than the Newsday NHL headline I saw on a 2012 story.
My Nash Wednesday idea has nothing to do with Nash Bridges or Steve Nash.
Mine is all about Nash Roberts, the beloved New Orleans meteorologist who died in 2010 at the age of 92.
His broadcasting career spanned 50 years, starting in 1951, and it included three New Orleans TV stations: WDSU, WVUE
He became legendary for his low-key and old-school way of tracking hurricanes, so when the next Ash Wednesday comes around, also think of it as Nash Wednesday in honor of Roberts, and if that rhyme has no reason, make the first Wednesday of the storm season Nash Wednesday.
