a Canadian Beekeeper's Blog
6 1/2" of September rainfall under 1 1/2' of snow... along with a slow melt which had run water off the fields but not warm enough to clear the drainage ditches of snow, resulted in a massive back flood all along our landscape's natural flood plains.
I was caught of guard and not paying attention! One of my yards was slowly being submerged with flood water. I was pushed in with a tractor, so I could lift out the yard, then I was pulled out with the tractor, just to get stuck which required a larger tractor to pull both the truck and tractor out... FUN TIMES beekeeping on the Canadian Prairies !
