Beekeeping in Vermont...

Hello all,  yesterday we had severe wind in the area, which I expect you all experienced.  Anyway I was away for a few hours and when I returned home my neighbor suggested I check out my hives.  The wind had blown both of the top feeders, with stones, completely off the hives.  He was kind enought to put the tops back on and saved my hives.  I did find an inner cover about 40 feet away and replaced it.  The hive was a little disturbed and was flying around a little, but was not aggressive.  It appears that all is well and thanks to a good neighbor, who knows nothing about keeping bees, the day was saved.  Merry Christmas to all.  Peter.
