I'm about 80 miles north of the gulf, and I have lots of brood, workers and drones. Checked some hives yesterday, no queen cells, but lots of brood. One hive had moved up, I left some supers on. It had 1 deep with not much of anything in it. Next is a medium it had close to 8 frames of brood, then there were 2 shallows. The bottom one had six frames of brood, and the top one had 5. Those 3 supers also had honey and pollen. This hive is loaded with bees also, and these are 10 frame hives. Good luck to you all.
