Abnormal temps

What happens when it is 69˚ outside on the 15th of December, the 15th day of advent, the feast of Saints Nino and Valerian, and six days before Hanukkah and the Winter Solstice?
Ice caps melt, ocean levels rise, and our bees sense a confusing elevation of the temperature, break their winter cluster and venture out of their hives.

If you think you are confused, imagine a lone honeybee this morning, flitting around the vast white paneled WONDER BREAD truck in the A&P parking lot. I saw her there and knew her for one of ours.
