I started my beekeeping in lovely sunny weather about 7.45 am. The bees were flying and well behaved. I had to abandon my inspections in monsoon rain, thunder, lightning, and huge hail stones just a few hours later, the bees not surprisingly very unhappy. No wonder they are struggling to get any food.
