My truck is reading 79 right now. Feels glorious!

looks like the squall line is already setting up and will miss Rochester :(  as always. 
 

As a side note, this first warm day made my honeybees swarm. I was planning to split them tomorrow. Missed it by one day!!  Damnit all.  I Was able to collect them successfully though.

Oh they sting alright. Only once though and then they die. But oh do they sting. That swarm had 30,000 bees!

Their is a perception that bumble bees don't sting, which is half right lol

In general, bumblebees are peaceful insects and will only sting when they feel cornered or when their hive is disturbed. When a bumblebee stings, it injects a venom into its victim. Only female bumblebees (queens and workers) have a sting; male bumblebees (drones) do not.

Bumblebees are docile but pack a very long stinger and can give a nasty sting.  No barb though, so they can sting multiples times.   All drones of the bees species are stingless as their stinger was replaced with a penis, no joke.

Are you looking for honey or bees?  I have tons of honey.  Don't have any bees to part with.

This is great stuff. My wife takes it in her coffee in the mornings. Wegmans also sells this, I think the same price for 17oz.

There is the potential for a prolonged period of significant rain
late Sunday through at least Monday when a few inches of rain could
be experienced. This would introduce the risk for localized
flooding...particularly in urban areas and near smaller tributaries.
