    Tell me about it. It's been raining almost everyday here with temps in the mid-50's. It's supposed to dry out next week with with temps in the low 60's. Hopefully the girls will start bringing in Eucalyptus.

    Started snowing here last night after I went to bed, and didn't really stop until this afternoon, along with 30 mph wind from the north.

    My hives face south, so the entrances are both sheltered from the wind and shouldn't have too much snow on them. We were lucky, it was warm (around 34 all day) so the snow didn't drift too badly, otherwise they might have been buried.

    They were flying on Sunday.

    No snow here either. Just sometimes frosty at night. It is call Spring Fools, one minute it is like Spring time the next is like winter time. But the weather cannot fool me. Tree leaves still falling down here and there. I know we are still in the winter time for another 2 months or so. Somewhere in March to April is the real Spring for us here. But the bees still flying and collecting pollens and nectar in the low 50s. So far so good with few more sunny days.
