All hives upright after Storm Dennis passes through

Hot on the heels of Storm Ciara comes Storm Dennis. The UK experienced strong winds and very heavy localised rain. There has been flooding in some areas, but not in Oxford yet.

Looking at local wind speed and wind gust speed, Storm Ciara looks about the same strength as Storm Dennis. Gusts around Headington up to 30 knots; gusts around RAF Brize Norton around 45 knots. There was steady rain for most of the weekend.

Thankfully my hives have stayed upright. Nothing much to report. I just wish that the rest of the country could say the same.
