What gorgeous weather we’re having!
I don’t want to jinxify it, but it has been a most welcome change.

Hadal \HEYD-l\, adjective:
1. of or pertaining to the greatest ocean depths, below approximately 20,000 feet (6500 meters).
2. of or pertaining to the biogeographic region of the ocean bottom below the abyssal zone.
