The bees have arrived safe and sound. I picked them up this afternoon after work. It was a thrill and interesting driving home with a box filled with over 3,000 bees in a box with a couple on the outside next to you.
We lucked out with the weather. This week it has been raining all week. Really hard ridiculous rain, tornado sirens and the whole shebang. It is also going to rain all weekend. But today, the day we got the bees it did not rain, it held off long enough for us to be able to get them into the hive.
