    So the family and I are sitting at a red light, taking a break from working in the yard.
    As the light goes green, my wife looks up and said, "are those bees?", I look up and a swarm is moving down the street. thru the intersection. Stuck in the middle of the road, I have to go thru, we turn into a lot and park and jump out, hoping to follow them.
    Not a bee in sight, we wlaked up and down Main Street looking for any sign of the swarm or stragglers that may lead us to the swarm.
    Still nothing.... what a bummer, we still have no bees for the new TBH.
    Only swarm call that was actually a swarm, was said to be 12' up, drove an hour, only to find the bees 25' up a twig of a tree, not safe for a ladder at all.
