OK My wife and I went out to check on them yesterday(95 deg F WOW). When we opened up both hive I saw A LOT of uncapped honey cells(about 5 frames worth). Is this due to the heat or is this due to the fact that a lot of nectar producing plants are dying?

i'd guess it's because they hit a good pocket of nectar, brought in a lot, and have not yet capped it.

.....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.....
