    I hope the picture is just where you have to cross to get to the higher ground where the hives actually are.

    Good luck with them, hopefully it's not a wash. It should be letting up now but who knows. I know a few yards were lost around here and a couple orchards up the street are flooded due to the creek/irrigation ditch that's overflowing into them.

    Hopefully they won't float away. I had a wintered yard that floated down a creek that normally was a quarter mile away and six feet wide when it was flowing at all!. I was able to rope some as they floated under a bridge and surprisingly some made it to high ground under the lid and lived thru it. Fortunately a much smaller bunch than yours.

    Wow. I am not sure that I would be so brave with water over the hood. Next thing you know it is over the whole truck, who knows. I am surprised the engine did not stall.

    I can only wish you all the best in these tough times.

    I know the feeling
    Driving up to a yard of floating hives is defeating.
    We drove with water up to the truck doors thst night picking hives, still alive uptop in dry spaces above the floating waterline, with the exyloader

    Best of luck
