Last week I talked about the January thaw we experienced. Well, February decided differently. Here is what our Groundhog Day looked like:
Real nice, huh. Kathy did work up the energy somehow, after the two plus hours of snow removal we both worked at (we have a long lane), to wade through the drifts to check out the bees. She said there were no drifts by the hives, which sit just to the east of a double row of pine trees. It has proven to be a good location, providing snow break and wind break from the west. Where we live, on top of a pretty decent hill, wind breaks are essential. She cleared away the landing pad and listened to the hives but heard nothing. It's interesting that I am the one who has no difficulty hearing the bees even though I am almost totally deaf in one ear and do not hear so well out of the other. I do seem to do well with low frequencies though, so the congregate hum of the bees I pick up quite well.
Let's hope the month goes out like a lamb. Wait, that's next month...
