Earthquake refubees?

That bump you can barely see in the center, below the branch, is a swarm of bees that showed up in downtown Norwich, just outside my office window, about an hour after the earthquake. They milled around in mid-air over East Main Street for a while and then clustered in this tree in the park. I have no idea whether the quake could have disturbed them -- anyone know?

Don't these dresses look familiar?

This picture is from an Evening Sun article about the Sherburne "Heritage Day" event last Saturday. I don't know who the people are, but I do believe the lavender/pink dress on the left is Beth's, the gray one near the right is Meg's, and the green plaid on the far right is Jo's.
