I made a post on my beekeeping blog Jareds bees blog about the weather we have been having in NC. The reason I bring this up is this picture:



How sad is this?!?!?! This is in Boonville, NC. Quite a few hives have been destroyed in this apiary! The waters in most of the rivers in the Piedmont have flooded and several sewer plants failed due to the flooding at the start of the week spilling sewage into the rivers....

The Yadkin River in my neck of the woods (the one that caused the hive damage) was 28' above normal! Now they are predicting several inches of snow and everyone is running to the grocery scared of 2-3 days of bad weather. As we all know, people in NC don't get regular snow fall, so several inches scares everyone. We don't have the infrastructure to handle it.

That is just awful! Good luck with everything down there. I hope that insurance will at least cover the monetary losses.

Thank heavens they are not mine.

I do not know who owns them, but it is a sad sight.... If you squint, you can make out some of the nurse bees clinging for dear life....

That's a terrible sight. I hope the beek has hives at a second, higher site.
