The Wife Says That, "A Tornado of Bees as High as the Second Story Window..."

I am at work. The wife called and said that the bees a swirling like a tornado around the hive and the column is as high as the second story bedroom. She asked me what was going on.

Last inspection showed more swarm cells and supercedure cells than I've ever seen... Albeit, this is only my second year. Those cells were capped. I presume they are swarming?

If it matters, this is the hottest day we've had this year. 80's.

yea, sounds like swarming to me. I've seen it twice unfortunately. This last time they came back and settled back into their hive after 30 minutes or so.

Am I the only person on this forum that cringes when others call their spouse "the wife"?

Even "my wife" would sit better...but really "the wife" must have a name....Anne,my wife,saw

Sorry but so many seem to resort to the wife, yet I don't think I have read about "the husband":)
