Just In Time

It's rainy, and super windy, and cold. But, it was also the day my bees were available for pick up. I went as early as I could this morning to go get them, before the wind was due to increase dramatically. I planned to keep the bees in the garage until the weather cleared tomorrow, but I was told by the beekeepers at pick up to get them in as soon as I got home, as it would be better overall for the bees. It wasn't raining, just misting, so I went for it and got them loaded into the new Langstroth hive. And then it rained. A lot!
This queen has a blue dot, and she shall be named...Alcibee. Alcibie was an Amazonian warrior in ancient Greek mythology. Long may she reign!
