    Default which would you say I should be worried about?

    Here I am practically floating in the middle of my property, and I'm left wondering with soggy feet. Which do you think I should worry about more?

    Nice blue, Hummingberd! We've got lots of down trees in town, although nothing here, luckily we took down all the trees that were endangering the house, garage and hives this past summer! We've kept power, too, but lots around us didn't. Greg is over at my mothers checking the hives over there.

    It's a good thing you have the rock on that hive Hummingberd I'm not sure the straps would keep the top on! Just kidding!!!

    Well, last night, at 2 am I woke up, heard the wind, and went and put extra bricks on my hive. So I guess you know what I vote for.

    Anything is possible, it just takes longer.

    I would buy a barge to put the house and the hive on.

    Hummingberd, I took you more for the kayak type. Might be a bit unstable checking your hives in a kayak, though.

    Good call. You're so right, I AM a kayak girl!!! I just want everyone to know that the newly formed lake and the hives are NOT in close proximity to one another. The hive is up on high ground. The issue is that the water was eeking every so closely to my HOUSE! Yikes. Luckily, the rain slowed and the water has receeded! Yippeeeeeeeeee....

    I'd drive a few nails through the cover just to make sure.

    hah! Ok, ok. The rock is there because the straps usually aren't there. We used the straps cuz winds got up to gusts of 60 mph. I'm also happy to announce that the cover successfully stayed on the hive. I was a little worried for awhile there!
