Sean,

Glad to hear you fair so well. The wind damage to the landscaping will throw the bees for a loop. Because there are no flowers for them to gather nectar from. Beekeepers up north refer to this as winter. The difference for us is there is no snow.

Sincerely,
Brendhan

sean, glad to hear you are doing ok.  for a big nasty hurricane it looks like most got lucky. 
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Sean, I have thought many times of you over the last few days.  SEeing you posting is a good thing, this makes us all happy.  Weather like that is one nasty ol' thing.  32 hives, wow, what a grunt that must have surely been.  Well, as well all are happy, this is an even better day.  Best of our beautiful life.  Cindi

had a look at my hives today they seem to be doing ok. Lost one box through robbing. Some hives haven't touched the sugar water so i assume they are finding food somewhere. Of course the blooms seem to be coming back in every area except mine. Its nice and green but no blooms.

Sean, your sun is shining again.  I am happy things have gone well, what a trauma, I told my husband of your plight and what you did, he was as sorry and shocked as I was.  Yeah!!!  Things will be well, Sean.  Have a wonderful day, beautiful life.  Cindi
