Looks like we are in the path of the Debster.. keeping my fingers crossed for it tuo turn west. A friend of mine lost his colonies during TS Fay a few years ago.

We will keep ours crossed for you.  Was hoping it would come a little closer to here, not here just closer, could use some rain.  Good luck with your bees in the storm.

We needed the rain but not the winds. I tried to check my weather station on the web to see what the totals are for today but it appears offline at the moment.

Been raining here for 3 days straight with the occasional blows and it looks like we've got a couple of days to go yet. NOT good bee weather!

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

here too. but the key word is SUM.
they say its still going northeast. It may head towards Savannah. so we may get some of it. we are getting the clouds. dark but no rain in them yet. most of the rain is south of interstate 16 and east of interstate 75 by the radar. maybe Tuesday?

Deb is coming my way also, just hoping that the hives are protected enough behind the shop. Got them up on cinder blocks so they won't wash away.

Fortunately ole Deb decided to turn east... thats good since we can't get to the beach house on Alligator Point since the road washed out and flooding in Sopchoppy. Some areas in Wakulla Co just south of me had over 20 inches of rain through yesterday. I received alittle over 10in over 3 days...

I think Deb is trying to say something about giving Florida a bath, a long bath since she is happy there.
