1st its too dry for way too long now Im buying scuba gear for the girls, Debbie of the coast is hammering us but Im more worried about the winds then the rain, some of my hives are a bit tall and kinda prone to the winds, all I can do is pray because its too late to go out in this mess and do any real work in the yards:sad:

Wow! I just heard the weather update on Debbie and it seems like you are in the path. Best of luck to you and your hives and I pray all in the path are safe.

Too bad we didn't get all this rain in March and April,I'm sure the honey situation would've been a lot better.

That's Florida weather for ya,if you don't like the current weather hang around a bit,it'll change.

All y'all in Florida and the Gulf coast: STAY SAFE! They say it's going to be a slow and real wet storm

I am on the other side of florida, just south of Jacksonvile, but enough rain habitually swamps everything, hopefully the rain will push some plants into early flowering and bring a quick end to the dearth.

Sarasot is in a "Training area", storms have been coming in right on us for 2 days solid now, starting to think I should have installed floatation devises on my hives, pools over flowed , lost 6 screen panels in cage all ready, its getting ugly

one beekeeper in Jacksonville, Fl took pictures of his beeyard showed a palletized group of 4 hives flooded half way up the first brood chamber, entrance totally under water. Suddenly having my hives in the highlands seemed to be a great idea.Barry

Flood time is another reason to have an upper entrance. Once one of my hives got flooded above the floorboard, didn't have an upper entrance and the whole colony smothered.
Best of luck to all our tropical storm/pre-hurricane affected beeks. I hope for you all that nothing blows over or away.
