    First day over 60 this winter... Violated one of my rules this winter, "never declare a hive dead until it's over 60 and no flight." Checked my nuc yard this morning and most were flying, I had declared them dead. Interestingly, 3 of the 4 groomers from FL are still alive and appear pretty strong. I guess they went into a hard cluster because we've had warm days with no flight recently. Also, most of the Georgia package queens are still alive... So much for local queens
