I checked my hives actually the day after I wrote the post about my bees possibly being dead.
The wintertime is rough and I knew that getting into beekeeping. Keeping them strong and alive through the winter was the most important part of the process. However, we didn’t really expect a sharp -10º average drop in temperature for a week… or two? Idk how long it was. It felt like years of living in the negatives.
Winter is coming! It’s coming slowly, but nevertheless, it’s coming. One of my main goals with this beehive is to keep it alive through the winter. That means we need to prepare.
I’ve noticed people tend to hate weather. Whether it be the cold, the snow, the rain, the hail, or the lava creeping into their homes, it seems fairly popular to hate all weather. I’m not like that. I love the weather, maybe possibly too much.
