That happened to a friend of mine a few years ago when everything burned around L.A., bummer, but insurance made him well (more or less). no one hurt in his family either and that's the important part. You'll get new stuff.
I'm sorry for the loss of your house but happy your bee yard was not touched. Good luck on the house. The upside is that all of the things you didn't like about your old house can be corrected in your new one.
Long distance hug, Gazelle. I lost both my home and my business in the Thomas Fire last December. I'm still looking around for some better work. I'll never make it back on minimum wage jobs, so most of other peoples' "help" and suggestions are useless. Let me know if I can help - I'm in the mid-state area right now and would move up North despite Winter beginning. I don't know if you are a hobbyist, a sideliner, or going commercial with bees. If you are considering a business, let me know and I'd be happy to share my plan with you. I'm adept at most aspects of construction, automotive work, and of course, bee work
We're looking at a wet Winter in the mid-state area, and I wish I were ready for it. I love to have 1,000 hives ready to fill up with bees and a big, long flatbed with which to move them around.
