New Year's Day

Just a wee deoch an doris of Lagavulin to make certain the year is off to a great start. I'm sure it matters not that it is in a glass from the Oban distillery.  It would taste just as sweet in any glass.

The year here ended unseasonably warm with December being the warmest December on record.  Though the sun is out today there have been torrential rains in this area,  Below are two pictures, the first taken on November 30 and the second taken on December 30.  They were taken in the same location along the east bank of the Great Miami River where the dog and I walk frequently.

The Great Miami empties into the Ohio River which empties into the Mississippi River.  The people downstream are suffering, but living 150' above the river keeps us safe here.

And year ten begins.....

SlĂ inte and a very happy New Year Dan,

A fine dram to start the year - and a Glencairn glass is definitely the best vessel from which to enjoy it :o)

Here's to 2016!
