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.
