It made it to 38 today... I hefted the two colonies and both still doing very good!!!
Then, two workers came flying out of the hive toward me, only to drop out of the sky after a great attempt to check me out. I found a few others on the sidewalk near a foot tall pile of snow off at the side, I picked one up and stuck her on the dashboard in my car - about 20 minutes later when I went into the car to drive to the food store, she was gone - I assume flew out the open door while I was sitting down.
Odd time of year, we all know the 45 degree rule, but then we see an occasional worker beating the odds, or at least trying to. I'm happy with the weight of the hives so far, it was a brutal 3 week stretch here, but this week's forecast looks much warmer, I expect a cleansing flight in the days ahead.
