A Winter's Day

2/8/15 36 degrees F, light breeze
Checked the bee yards today and found all alive and well. Some are a little light and I'll have to keep an eye on them through March when they start brooding up.
But so far, so good!

End Of The Road

2/4/15 37 degrees, calm
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.
