It has been raining and windy ever since first light. Except for the Sweet Gum, almost all the leaves are down. On the way back from my daily treatment at 9:30 am, I had to turn the car lights on because it was almost as dark as night. This is my kind of day.
The stormy weather gave me an excuse to pull out the bottle of Deco Distilling Coffee Rum we bought last summer when we visited the tasting room down near the river. Like a mad scientist I mixed cocoa, milk, and rum to find the right proportions. The result - delicious! The perfect compliment to a stormy day.
