Understudy , you sure have it bad down there don't you. poor you.
It's miserable. I don't have to winter my bees. Year round honey flows.
No thermal underwear, parkas, or golasees. No snow chains on my tires, no ice patches. No bags of salt to melt snow in the driveway. No heating devices to melt snow on the roof. No frozen water pipes. No snow blowers or snow shovels.
I hear constantly from people who live up north how they "need" the change of seasons and if that suits them great. People up north can throw all the snowballs they want. I will be fine with that. I am the other hand make my snowballs in the blender and mix them with certain flavors of alchool. But then again the rules are different down here.
