Hi, Scott - we're north of Denver in Longmont (near Boulder).
The hiving went well. Except I accidentally smooshed a few bees when I was shaking out the package and then lost all confidence in myself. :/ Got my first sting by freaking out just a bit.... called a beek friend who helped me hive the second package and assured me I was doing okay. :) The bees are happy, at least one queen is out (checked the next day and the first cage was empty, second cage still had a bit of marshmallow in it). Will check that second hive today just to make sure, but trying not to bug them too much. They are draining sugar water about a pint a day, and saw some full pollen sacks arriving at the hives yesterday.
Supposed to snow (UGH!!) again this Wednesday - do I need to do anything to the hives to prepare for that?
