Don't know why
There's no sun up in the sky
Stormy weather
Since my man and I ain't together
Keeps raining all the time

Life is bare
Gloom and misery everywhere
Stormy weather
Just can't get my poor old self together
I'm weary all the time, the time
So weary all of the time

- Harold Arlen "Stormy Weather"

I love grey, some people might think it's a boring colour, or it's practical or dirty, but it's not, it can be warm or cool; tinged with blue or with a hint of red; so pale it's almost white or so dark it's may as well be black. Stormy Weather 18-4214, definitely sits on the dark/blue side of grey and if I had to compare it to anything it would be pieces of slate, but even that ranges wildly between blues, purples and greens. That's what makes it beautiful.

It's also completely the wrong colour for today, given we had another gloriously sunny day, albeit cold to start, by lunch it was warm! It has actually been nicer the last two days, than most of the summer was this year. Which just seems alien when you a) live in Scotland and b) have started getting used to wearing jumpers again.

Stormy Weather may be literally on the horizon for next week, but as a colour, it's a classic.
