It got to about 60 degrees so far today. I know this is early but always enjoy any report good or bad. No judgement but just find it interesting every year about this time till about mid april.
I looked at the entrances of my nine hives. I believe nine for nine have made it to this point. I say I believe cause you never know what might be robbing or something (or at least I never know for sure). I have two hives that don't have quite the traffic and are not that loud when I put my ear to them but I believe are ok. I will not be opening my hives for a while yet. Tomorrow is supposed to be as warm as today but the computer says an average of 35/40 degrees for the ten days after.
I see the maples about to pop but if it stays as cold, that will not mean much. The bees are mobbing the chicken food and I did not see a lot of water gathering yet.
So, so far so good for me though I will know more the first few 70 degree days that I can actually look in the hives.
Time will tell.
