40F w/ bright sunshine right now and I have bees flying, dropping yellow 'polka-dots' in the snow and dragging out the dead in both of my Langs colonies. My LONG Hive isn't as active but it also has bees flying today.
January is 'typically' our coldest month in Northern Wisconsin (we're about 280 miles north of the above mentioned DELLS). We should be in the middle of our annual deep freeze right now. We should be below zero.
I'm going down to dump sugar (if needed) in my hives, won't be going any further than that today, since I already know they're alive :).
