I picked up the new bees today! This involved five hours of driving. I now really really hope they thrive!
I told the guy handing out bees that our bees froze to death.
Bee Guy: "Everyone's bees froze to death!"
Me: "Well, we had two hives survive. Three out of five froze to death."
Bee Guy: "I had thirty-one hives freeze to death."
Me: "Thirty-one out of how many?"
Bee Guy: "Thirty-one out of thirty-one froze to death."
