What comes around goes around -- that special relationship

It's well known that the British Isles gets its weather from the west and south west and it's being really well emphasised this week in Britain.

We seem to be getting a replay of last week's ghastly weather in the North East USA that saturated their pumpkin fields -- and the weather system doesn't seem to have changed a bit in transit over the Atlantic. So a week of rain is expected in Britain which is bad news for beekeepers waiting for their new queens to mate.

At last inspection, my bees weren't preparing to swarm, so they'd better hang on until this filthy weather has passed!
