The outdoor temps. seemed warm.. but w/ the wind blowing over the ice.. it still felt pretty cool. I went down to the hives several times once the temp hit the 40 degree mark.. to see who was flying.. a couple hives had activity.. but not until 1-2pm. Found little "pot-holes" in the ice all around one hive.. each hole had one bee that didn't make it.
Todays high was only suppose to be 36.. but I see it hit 52.. maybe the GroundHog not seeing his shadow this year will give us that early spring!
