I lost 4 hives out of 45.  Had to move 2 into insulated nuc boxes to avoid losing them too.  Also lost 2 out of 12 nucs.

I lost one out of four hives so far.  Winter hasn't left yet as we had 3 inches of snow earlier in the week.  Proabably won't see dandelions for 3 or more weeks.

I reported earlier 12/12 well now it is 11/12.  One was queenless so I checked the bottom board and found no mite problem so I donated the geriatric bees to the next least prosperous which doesn't look all that bad.   I am still happy.  At least half of them are two deeps full of bees and i wonder what they are going to be by time for dandelions and that is nearly a month yet here.
