JANUARY 30TH APIARY REPORT by beekeeper Fred

Curiosity got the better of me and I went out at noon to check on the easily accessible hives.  My truck thermometer showed it was now a balmy -13F after reaching a low of -26F this frigid Wednesday morning.  All 14 hives were buzzing.  The lower hive entrances were all covered with recent snow.  The upper hive entrances, which I put in the upper brood chamber, were partially blocked with frost.  I will provide another update this Saturday after more seasonal temperatures return.
