I made a post on my beekeeping blog http://jaredsbees.blogspot.com/
about the weather we have been having in NC. The reason I bring this up is this picture:
This is in Boonville, NC. Quite a few hives have been destroyed in this apiary! The waters in most of the rivers in the Piedmont have flooded and several sewer plants failed due to the flooding at the start of the week spilling sewage into the rivers....
The Yadkin River in my neck of the woods (the one that caused the hive damage) was 28' above normal! Now they are predicting several inches of snow and everyone is running to the grocery scared of 2-3 days of bad weather. As we all know, people in NC don't get regular snow fall, so several inches scares everyone. We don't have the infrastructure to handle it.
