    Low 45 tonight.

    Then 31, 30 and 29 Tuesday night.. Highs around 50 days. Then its warming back up.

    Anything I need to be doing. Other than not mess with the hives. I had been feeding them through last weekend. I removed the top supers Tuesday to hopefully make the hives smaller. Less space to heat. I had just added them Sunday.

    And I put entrance reducers back on the entrances Tuesday as well.

    I hope with highs around 50 during the day, they can handle the nights for a few hours.

    couldnt agree with you more about he weather. The bees will be fine they only heat the cluster not the whole hive. with highs in the daytime around 50 they will be moving around

    I came to work and swept 2 inches of "spring" off the porch. Temps up and down are giving me headaches.
