Well, it's been rainy and blustery lately (a typical Thanksgiving week in Seattle!), but we woke up to sunshine today. Looking at this picture of beehives taken around 1900, our weather is downright pleasant and mild!

Bees in winter quarters, packed in chaff hives. Bee-house at left. About 1900.

We hope you (and your bees if you keep them) are having a peaceful holiday weekend.
