The weather has been cold and wet. We have had brief periods of sub-freezing temperatures the last few nights with a small amount of snow and lots of rain. There was perhaps an inch of slushy snow on the hives and throughout the yard yesterday. The bees have been flying during brief periods of sun when the temperature has exceeded 50 degrees F on the hives. We should be able to open the hives on Monday when the temperature is predicted to exceed 60 degrees F. More wet, cold weather is predicted for mid-week and beyond.
