Language shapes reality, and Earth shapes language. To expand that vocabulary, here’s an environmental neologism, a code used alfresco – an Alfrescode – to give voice to a particular phenomenon. 

Blues Weather

Noun

From the climate of Delta blues music

When the weather is so hot, so humid, and so stagnant, that the gravelly breath of the guitar is the only breeze.

“I can’t take another day of this blues weather. I wish it’s just cool off!”
