Took advantage of the break in the cold weather to visit a few of the
bee yards, 47* calm and sunny. The bees seem to be holding their own,
most still heavy with stores although a few are lighter and will need some attention
in the next few weeks. Loses are minimal with a few small clusters getting caught by the cold temperatures of the last few weeks and a few others clustered high and away from the honey which is heavy in the bottom brood box.
Lots of cleansing flights with bee poop everywhere.
