It’s blimmen freezing here so tempted to light the fire the past few nights.

not honey weather that’s for sure.

? Should move to the Sunny Westcoast. Hot as hell here. Just put another FD box of mostly undrawn frames on my largest hive yesterday. Had 3 FDs and a 3/4 on it and had a look yesterday and there packed full. Other hives have 3 boxes on and am putting an extra box on 5 of those to. Bees are now on the Rata,Flax and Some Clover now that the Kamahi's finished. Goin to be a nice tasti honey i thinks.

When I thought this year is finally over we got 2 earthquakes ( 5,2 and 6,2 Richter) some 70km away from us, also some minor ones.. We did got shook but so far I must be quiet. Near the epicenter, these people were hit bad, this second which happen today took some lives unfortunately.. We have few more days in 2020., so this might not be over yet ?

70klm is not very far away .

In NZ you can still get a lot of damage that close .

I suppose it depends on how the fault lines in your area are arranged .

Hi Goran - There was quite a bit of footage on the TV news last night re Croatia and the quakes.  Fingers crossed for you.  I know what constant earthquakes are like, and how suddenly everything can look like a war zone. And on top of this your country has the Covid issue.  Keep Safe & Take Care.

I’m working on it :)

The Coast is my favourite place in the world.

I know people who have sold up in nelson area and moved to the coast and ended up with no mortage and money in the bank .

But houses you could buy for $250,000 three yrs ago are $400,000 now .
