I had just arrived home from biking a tortuous 16 mile climb up the canyon and back. I was just about to let the Chihuahuas out to do their business, and I suddenly had to stop. Something wasn't right. There were hundreds, thousands, no, millions of bees right next to the house. At first I thought I was delirious from the lack of oxygen to my brain from the bike ride and was seeing things. No, it really was a swarm of bees. I'm okay and sting free, thanks for asking! Luckily, the little busy bodies flew away about an hour later.
