Well it was slow day with the cleanout from the flood. The 40yrd dumpster is full. I took the day off thinking that the cleanup crew would be here for another full day but I was wrong.. They were her for 15 min. just checked the dehumidifers and droped off a few air scrubers. So I figured.. its not that windy (40 mph gusts) I could paint the hives. Fo I set up in the driveway between the houses and start painting.. a few min in and I smell something burning... 2 Brush Fires one about a mile to my east and the other 4 miles to the west..so in my head I am waiting for all the ash to start falling... But it didnt.. thank god.

So I continue painting 4 supers , 2 bottom boards , 2 top covers , and a hive top feeder. I havent seen a single bee yet this year. then a bumble bee came by buzzed my hezd and flew away.. Looked like he was checking out the new construction in his area.. I think he was looking for a building permit ( remember its NYC so the city want money for everything).. I finish up and just as I am about to remove the painters tape from the edge here comes my little bee inspector again checking to see if everything was up to code... Well I guess it was no fine ...

Might even need to buy a table saw to help with the renovations of the basement also, at least that is what you tell the wife.
