Well, we finally have internet again. Things are returning to normal for me again. My parents got their electricity back sometime last night. Thank goodness as yesterday it took me two and a half hrs to purchase gas for the generator. I had to do a lot of traveling to find that gas!
I had three bee calls today. All three related to the storm. One, a lady was calling around trying to get prices on her tree that fell over that's had bees in it for at least a year. Never heard back from her. Third one I am looking at tomorrow, that call came in tonight. They are also in a tree that fell over. Second call was an abscond I was able to hive tonight. Pretty good bit of bees. Put them in a deep and a medium. Pretty golden queen.
Speaking of golden, Suzie Lemoine of Golden Bee Products happened to be passing by while I was removing them. She and her friend stayed for quite a while and we had a ball!
The bees were resting on a red-tipped Photinia. These are the first bees I've fooled with since before the storm. A video is coming.
Here are some pics for now http://s356.photobucket.com/albums/oo4/Jefroka/Abscond%20on%20Red-Tipped%20Photinia/
PS: Ms Annette called me tonight and I have to tell you she really brightened my day!
