Waterloo Bridge, Gray Day - Monet, 1903
Another gray day! (Or another grey day if you're in other English-speaking countries.) Even on sunny days, gray has a slightly negative reputation - gray hair, etc. But, in the winter, gray is associated with All Things Dreary: stormy skies, rainy weather, snow plow slush, and . . . gray hair.

Indoors and out:
So embrace today's grayness . . . wishing you a gray day!
