Brings back memories of winters spend in ND while going through med school in Grand Forks. I don't miss the snow and freezing winters.

It is -10 here today - the corn stove has been running like gangbusters. Almost 2 bushels/day when it is this cold!

Well - I like it when they get covered on their own - but I am not inclined to go out and actually work at covering them up.

Here - the snowfall isn't reliable enough to make it part of my winterizing routine (some years we get almost none - at other times it will all come in March) and the periods of wind are so strong that it is likely they would be uncovered by wind shortly after I covered them.

I view the snow as the environment 'lending a hand' to help get my bees through winter.

Beautiful pics! I have not seen snow like that since the 70's or 80's! Don't miss it either. We just get the cold.
