Old bees, cold bees, no bees

The temperature has dropped, from a balmy and unusual winter 10-15 C range to around zero.

Have a look at this: http://scientificbeekeeping.com/old-bees-cold-bees-no-bees-part-1/

I admire anyone wearing an open-necked shirt inspecting a frame of bees. I am too frit.

A tragic scenario that happened here in California is we were hit with an unnaturally warm winter that beekeepers didn't adjust their diets for and caused hive collapses across the entire southern side of the state, sadly enough.
