I just heard this morning that one of my buildings (branch location of my business)flooded for the second time in 20 years.I dont know how bad but the neighbor said that there were chairs floating around in the offices.I have to run to Alabama on Tuesday to pick up14 hives of bees so I guess I will stop by and evaluate the mess then.

Sorry to hear that! I have been watching it on the weather channel the last couple days. They are getting trained with a lot more today. Hope things improve quickly. Be Careful!!

Got ahold of one of my employees down there and they couldnt even get within 10 blocks of the building this morning because the cops had the roads shut down.Got a call about an hour ago and he said they had gotten close enough to see the building and that there was still water half way up the hub of my new Dodge Sprinter(3 months old)but since the water is receding they didnt get close enough to see how high it had been.The guy in the building next door said that earlier there was water all the way up in the floorboards.I will probaly have to drive down tommorow and check out the damage.

It was about as bad as expected.wasted most of our inventory,totaled both of my trucks,and destroyed our offices and infrastructure.Oh well,I guess all of my employees will go from warehousemen to restoration specialist.We seem to thrive on adversity anyway.

No,Beekeeping is my hobby.We are in the Laboratory Supply Business.We sell everything they use to test blood from bandaids and table paper to test kits and microscopes and blood diagnostic equipment that can get pretty pricey.I just do the bees for fun and to relax.

We actually pulled out a Nikon scope that was worth about 10 grand.I dont know if its worth anything now.We carry several brands of scopes with decent quality in every price range.Let me know what your looking for.
