1) what’s left of my hair is grey

2) I have always thought that grey is a classier spelling than gray.

Tea.
People / hair.
Weather.
Stones.
Then other things.

As for the feel of it, I tend to rather like both the color and the word. I often like grey weather, and grey stones, and other things that are grey. There’s something soothing about it for me.

In the US, spelling it with an e is considered more upper class. I have no idea why. For that reason, I deliberately only spell it with an a.

Gray is a color I see very little of where I live.

Neither of your answers. I like the color grey when it has a little brown in it. That is the color of my car. In the sunlight it looks brown; in the shade it’s a nice gray color.

I associated grey with surnames. I know several.

The skies around Cleveland Ohio are usually gray. It’s depressing.

Modern decor.

Lots of my zumba clothing. Some of my pajamas.

Dark grey, or charcoal grey, I think of cars and suits.
