Every time I get a day off it is too cold to open the hives. I've been getting in from work after dark, and I'm not going there either. I was off on Sunday, but headed for a plant swap and didn't have the dexterity to look in the hives, I sprained my thumb Saturday. (they are not supposed to hold most of a person's weight, not really) I went from summer lids with jar feeders on top back to winter telescoping lids with deep frame feeders a couple of weeks ago when these new freezes started rolling in. I should write these things down, not sure when I did it, but it was after the goat died and before the current run of busyness got rolling.... I feel like last week was one really super long day. Did bookkeeping today, more to do but better. Off again tomorrow. High of 60, not warm enough for really deep inspections. I see lots of bees on hive 2 (they made their own queen, maybe that worked out well) and some bees on everyone else, so I guess they are ok.
