14C here and I haven't checked the apiary the last two days as the vandal cattle are now safely mewed up in the cattle courts. The day after my operation the sods broke the fence down for the grass on the apiary side. Thankfully the farm rallied round and put it to rights for me. Last time I looked though the tan backs were obvious so they are getting plenty from that.
Yes you have had a rough spell, we've had some better than expected days over here. The sun even poked its face out for an hour or two late morning today as the wind abated a little - different story now though.
