    -24 outside of Concord NH a little over a week ago.

    All my hives seem to be fine.

    I'm using Polystyrene hives and screened bottom boards that are not closed.

    27 degrees in Sebring, FL; The freeze lasted for three days; some areas in my county claim even colder. This was the hardest freeze in many years. The orange growers are picking like crazy to get their oranges to the juice market.

    -20 just outside Keene, NH. I went calling on the girls this weekend. Knocked on the polystyrene and heard them in both hives. Did a lift test and one was light. Slipped a patty in while it was a balmy 12 out. Lost about 20 bees when they came out to thank me...

    Lowest reported temp here was 5F on Dec. 28.




    Need a break from the snow?

    We had 32 days of below freezing weather in a row here. And when I say below freezing, most day highs were at 15F or below, with most night time lows at 0F or below. Rarely above 20F.

    Broke the trend yesterday, as it finally got up to about 35F.

    -20 F. is our low for the year, tied a record for most snowfall in January, 30.7 inches, tied the Blizzard of 1978 year. Above freezing today for first time in quite a while.
