WOW now thats what you call big lumps of ice.
Do you think they will recover in a few days ?

If any bee's got caught out it would feel like walking down your high street and being hit by a dropping fridge.

Storms over Turkey

Hello,
I think there was widespread damage to crops and bees. Last Wednesday evening we could see the lightning over Turkey. The storm must have had a very high ceiling - maybe 60,000 plus for us to be able to see it. I was just glad that we were not underneath it!
Best regards
