The bright side of the flooding is that my house is still on dry land and I had a lot of fun bowfishing! The river is slowly going back down, but has been over flood level since Feb. This is the longest that it has been above floodstage that I can remember...or about anyone else it seems.
I hauled in water and supplies after Katrina hit; same whem Andrew hit Florida.
I stayed with some friends in La. and helped them pick up and rebuild again.
Thank you all for the kind words and support. The mosquito population is now getting a great start! I tought they were going to eat me up alive last night.
No word on the state of my flooded hives, nor has anyone even seen anything of them yet. I was hoping that they did not float away, but I cannot see anything white where they should be.
I also have a few questions about reusing flooded supers and hive bodies....it is okay to reuse them? I was wondering about contamination, molds, etc. I know that I will have to toss all of the frames, but I kind of would like to keep the hive bodies and supers if I could....most were new this year.
