On Wednesday March 8th we had some outstanding storms in the area. Winds were clocked at a maximum of 81 mph in Rochester. We have a significant number of trees down. A couple in particular had some of our hives as a target. Luckily, they fell 5 feet short of our girls. We’ve begun cleanup and now we are experiencing our coldest stretch of winter. It will be below freezing for the longest period of time this year. Hopefully our girls are able to cope with this strange weather.
On the bright side, our first hint of spring has appeared and hopefully will provide the girls with a plentiful food source until the early bloom starts.
