well all I can say is be careful what you wish for....be happy your hives are expanding and going up in numbers as that can change very fast...many bee keepers in my area lose a high percentage of hives over the winter from one of several issues....
you can sell off hives you dont want to finance new equipment to keep them growing....in my area a 5 frame nuc goes from $225 to $250.....so you can sell nucs or complete hives for alot more $$..

its not so much the cold, but mites and whats new by me, is that the bees go for death flights in the freezing cold and die, leaving the hive empty...I had that happen along with a few other bee keepers upstate...
