The sting effects are all gone now.  It felt different than my past normal due to my nerve issues from my spinal cord bruise with all the numb tingly stuff.  I've been stung countless times, and this is about the norm for me.  24 hours & swelling gone.  

  It could have been a small bumble bee, and likely was being it was pretty much full dark.  Usually worker honey bees are back to the hive by that time.  And I've never seen worker honey bees with stingers, and no known hives within 2 miles.  A bumble packs a pretty good sting too.  Anyway, all is fine now.

In the dark, I could just make out the basic shape, and it wasn't a wasp.  Not that long or as slim.

I got stung by some big black wasp thing a few years ago. It was huge didn't have a stinger but a dagger.

My arm swelled up bad. Never swelled like that before. Hurt. Man that thing was the worst sting ever.

I had to go get shots at the Dr to get it under control.

Nice pic, but I understand the need for dryer weather! I'm still waiting to finish the house I am working on because of the rain!

You can blame me. Not sure what the range is on this. But I washed and waxed both cars today. After I put the stuff away it started raining.

Yesterday in Ohio it was beautiful! Today raining mess.

Starting Wednesday, just a 10% chance that day, and no mention through next Sunday's forecast for any rain.  Soon as the ground will hold a tractor, I'm cutting my Sudex grass hay!

Yes, the neighbors used to raise deer, but they got shut down.

My next door negihbor raises white tail. He leases 200 acres or so in the outskirts of county, 12 ft fence and he uses it like a hunting preserve for those who want to "hunt" but don't actually want to go find th deer. He has some prize winning size bucks up there, I thikn he may have an albino too.

 

Sounds like your rain is like ours Daniel, Saturday was somewhat dry even though it rained overnight. Supposedly the worst thrunderstorms of the season coming in today. I had my garden roped in, weeds are going crazy again and my turkey pen is like a hog run, maybe worse.

Another flood roared through just a little bit ago, so had all my techno stuff unplugged.  All the last lightning strike took out a couple or 3 months ago (all phones, computer, wireless modem, 4 in one printer) was through my phone line, and they are supposed to come hook me up to the new fiber optic line tomorrow.  No more lightning through phone lines once that is done.  More chances of storms tonight & tomorrow afternoon, then 3 days of no rain & some sun, followed by 3 or 4 days of only 20 to 40% chances of rain.  I am sure hoping to get that Sudex rolled into hay.  This has been ridiculous.

Now you know how I feel! Been waiting since early last month to jack those floor joists back up and we go 5" of rain! Another 3-4 weeks for it to dry out enough to do anything under there!
