Saturday it was in the low 80's and here it is Sunday and a high of 47F and drizzle.
Suppose to be cool until after next Sunday at least.  :-x

Could be worse.  I don't believe we have officially hit 40 f yet.  In fact last year today we were more than 45 f warmer than we were today.  We are still typically around highs in the upper 20s and 30s.  We are still getting dumped in snow and seeing some sub zero temps at night.  Even if my candy hadn't smothered my hives, this weather may have finished them off.  I just hope that it warms up by the time my packages come at the end of April/beginning of May. 
Keeping bees since 2011.

Also please excuse the typos.  My iPad autocorrect can be brutal.
