Well, the Brushy Mountain Ventilated Bee Suit proved worth every penny again.
Storms just rolled through with 80+ mph winds toppling over 4 of my largest hives. Some boxes exploded when they hit the ground and I could smell mad bees (smells like bananas) as soon as I stepped out the back door. My wife and I, in the pouring down rain, put all the hives back together, giving some new boxes as needed, and were both covered in bees. Neither of us received a single sting.
We checked the other bee yards and there was no damage
It was 70 degrees today but going down into the low 30's with rain overnight. These bees would have been goners by morning.
