Luck was with everyone, though. The only damage was to the street light wire and a neighboring tree. No cars or houses hit.
When I was awakened at 4:30, I got up to stick a shim in one of the bedroom windows, which was rattling in its frame. I was also worried about the bee gum, but it stayed upright. I'm glad now that I had that tree taken down! It probably would've ended up in my living room.
Here's a video of the girls today (with some focus issues, sorry; I guess the camera has a fixed focus in video mode):
I learned firsthand the truth that bees don't like dark colors. When I first approached the hive wearing a black baseball cap, I quickly had some very unhappy guard bees circling me and chasing me back across the yard. When I switched to a light-colored cap, they mellowed out immediately. Some speculate that a dark shape looming over the hive means a hungry bear. Makes sense to me.
