Come On Irene

Rooftop Bees Ready for a Hurricane

“At this moment, You mean everything.”

I got the gals prepared for Hurricane Irene in style today.  I moved them closer to the house to protect them from the wind and then dressed them up in that pretty red tie down strap.

Hopefully they will weather the storm just fine this way.

But boy they did leave a yucky mess behind.  I’m glad I have a screened bottom board and this is not inside the hive – ew!

I’m counting on Irene to clean this up for me.  Come on Irene, let’s take off everything. “Toora Loora Toora Loo-Rye-Aye.”

Look the bees are dancing to the music!
