Hi everyone,
What does "mushy sky" mean?
From the Mist by Stephen King:
The morning was bright and as clear as a bell. The sky, which had been a mushy, hazy
color during the heat wave, had regained a deep, crisp blue that was nearly autumnal.
Does it mean "soft"; then, how can a color be soft?

    It was the colour of the sky that was mushy and hazy.

    Mushy (WR dictionary) - resembling mush; pulpy.

    It was an indeterminate and hazy colour.
