    This BEE a real problem...

    Semi Carrying Millions Of Bees Overturns On East Texas Highway

    LAMAR COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM) – A semi-trailer truck carrying a reported 15-30 million honey bees overturned on an east Texas highway on Memorial Day.

    It happened on southeast Loop 286 near the Old Clarksville Road intersection in Paris.

    One witness said as her truck approached the scene, hundreds of bees buzzed around the vehicle.

    “It wasn’t enough to block out the sun, but we could tell it wasn’t normal. That’s when we saw the semi on its side and the beekeepers,” she described.

    Multiple agencies came out to help redirect traffic from the area and clear the road of the bee boxes that fell from the truck.

    Local bee keepers were called in to help move the bees to a safer location and try to redirect the bees back into their hives, according to KXII-TV. They plan to move a queen in to try to attract more bees back to the hive for removal.

    Police officers in the area told CBS19-TV they don’t recall ever seeing an accident like this, and fortunately, several of their first responders who were stung are all alright.
    Every problem is the result of a previous solution.

    The article seems confused. Did this happen in Texas or in Paris?

    Maybe the driver took a wrong turn somewhere

    Yes

    We go through Paris, Texas on our way to Ohio (when we drive). YEARS ago, a tornado ripped through Paris, and tore the roof off a local church. I went along with a bunch of other pastors and church members to help rebuild the church.

    The construction foreman and I got along great, and he told me, "Hey, I want you to meet a local celebrity". I looked around, and he said, "Bathtub boy, come on over!"

    "Bathtub boy" was hunkered down in the bathtub in his house as the tornado ripped his house apart, and it literally lifted the bathtub - with him in it - high into the air for several minutes, then set it down gently in a field about a thousand yards from the house - 'bathtub boy' was unhurt. He pointed to the spot near the Church where the bathtub still sat next to a big oak tree.

    From the headline, I thought you were talking about Samantha.

    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

    I wish I could be there to help out. As it is I can't even spend any real time out of doors.

    Every few years this happens. There are literally thousands of such truck loads on the highways. Once in a while a truck overturns. Every few years one of the overturning trucks happens to be carrying bees and thus . . .
