I thought I'd check on the bees in the #SHD1 yard today as the temperatures were to be a bit warmer than the last few weeks have been. It's been 3 or 4 weeks since I have looked in on them so I brought some 50 lbs. of sugar in case any are getting a little light on stores.
Well the day was warmer than it has been but more than a week after the blizzard the road to the hives was still impassable. I tried to walk it pulling a sled behind me but the snow, with a 2 inch layer of ice on top, was to deep. I turned back and will try again another day.
