Good 35º super clear sky sunny morning. A touch of ice on the barn roof.
The predicted sun yesterday wasn't here early...
The clouds stayed, but dropped the dark and were fluffy, and the sun came through on and off....
We topped at 71º.

Interesting about this alcoholic beverage....
Absinthe is historically described as a distilled, highly alcoholic beverage (90–148 U.S. proof). It is an anise-flavored spirit derived from botanicals, including the flowers and leaves of Artemisia absinthium ("grand wormwood"), together with green anise, sweet fennel, and other medicinal and culinary herbs.
Absinthe traditionally has a natural green color but may also be colorless. It is commonly referred to in historical literature as la fée verte ("the green fairy"). It is sometimes mistakenly referred to as a liqueur, but it is not traditionally bottled with added sugar and is, therefore, classified as a spirit. Absinthe is traditionally bottled at a high level of alcohol by volume, but it is normally diluted with water before being consumed.
