The day before Thanksgiving and the weather has turned bad. Earlier in the week it was into the 70's and the bees were out in great numbers collecting water for the winter. All three hives buzzing up a storm. Maybe that's what happened.

Today the temp is 45 and the bees in all three hives are active. See no pollen coming in so I think they are storing up on water. Insulation complete. Had Bee Meetup last night, small turn-out and everyone is hoping for a surviving winter. Got and gave several tips which will be useful. A couple harvested to much honey, as when I said that the Langstroph hive needs at least 75 lbs. to winter over, several said they didn't leave that much.
