Word of the Day: Cerulean

And now, for our first truly colorful Word of the Day.

cerulean (suh roo'le uhn) adj. Sky-blue; azure.

If it sounds familiar, it's because Katie used this word several times last night to describe the sky over Ground Zero.

The word derives from the Latin term meaning "heaven."
