Snow fell all Saturday morning and after it stopped the temperatures dropped dramatically. We awoke to 17 on Sunday morning but it was a nice, balmy 27 today. I haven't seen a bee for more than a week now, but when I rap on the side of the hives I can hear a gentle hum from inside both. More rain is forecast for the week but with the rain comes warmer temperatures and maybe some breaks when the bees can get out for a while. If they want to do some ice skating, the fountain will be the perfect spot!
