We have had 10 days of cold wet weather and looks like several more is forecast.  Not much blooming right now, If I had my bees would I need to be feeding them during times like this?  Just asking so I'm ready for next year.  The high temps are barely 60 ish.

I'm not far from you and having the same weather.  I was debating the same issue you are asking about.  I checked into my hives during a break in the weather and all of them have lots of honey and lots of pollen stored that should be plenty to keep them going for quite a while.  Even my nucs that are small in bee numbers have been packing away enough pollen when the weather was good.

Each hive could be different, just something you have to evaluate when things like this come your way.
