    It’s worth a shot - thanks. The weather is not looking so good right now, but that can change. I’m hoping that the drones around here are mature enough to mate by the time she flies. Time will tell....

    Thanks. No, I haven’t seen any drones. Or I should say I wasn’t really looking for them. During the cut out procedure I was focused more on just getting them vacuumed up, didn’t notice any though....
