That arctic blast was brutal.  Coldest spell so early in November that I can recall.  The river through our little town even froze over already.  There had been winters in the 90s and 00s where it never froze over at all.  Probably not a good sign for the rest of winter..... Sad

Speaking of Christmas lights, it might be about time to cue up Christmas Vacation.  Smiley

The evidence released so far shows the cop was more than justified IMO. 

I know some beeks think I’m a “leftist”.  I disagree, it’s the people supporting this thug kid who I classify as leftist; or far left.  Just like the other extreme, these folks simply refuse to accept data and facts over their world view.  The only outcome they will accept is guilty….regardless of facts.

If anybody deserves more scrutiny here it’s the parents of the thug.  Why didn’t they teach him to behave in a civilized manner in the first place?

OldMech, Do you use carbide blades? It seems to me when I clean them up, they cut like new. Glad you're OK. And to all, safety glasses is the most important ppe you have.

   Yes I do use carbide blades, but they are the CHEAP ones.. usually I buy them for $4.99 each, and buy one get one free. It costs me about Eight bucks to get one sharpened..  Providing I have not hit a nail and popped a few of the carbide teeth off...
   No feeling in the tip of that finger. Has a numb spot, kinda like my head....

My bees died last spring due to very cold conditions.  I only had one colony left because of bear attacks, so I was hoping to get it though the the 2012-2013 winter.  However, it died. 

I couldn't find any beekeepers to sell a nuc this year because all the beekeepers sustained 75% losses as well.  So everyone did horrible.  We are in a mite-free area so it has nothing to do with mites; just long-cold winter (-30 to -40 for prolong time).

Question:  My frames of unused honey are mold-covered from my dead-out.  About 20 frames.  Should I save these frames of honey for 2015 colonies that I will purchase or just boil the frames to extract the wax and forget about the capped, moldy honey.  What would you do?  I would hate to waste all that honey, but maybe I should.

No problem.  I have a small backyard and a fireplace, with nothing inbetween the hives and the fire pit.  Never had a problem.  Only problem I've had is when my daughter leaves her toys out and they fill with water and the bees drown in them.

My fire bowl is about 20 feet from the apiary.  The flood lights might attract some late home-bound flyers, but the fire won't.
I don't run the floods while the fire is burning anyway.  Spoils the effect.
