Stopped by to check on food resources. Had a bit of fondant left over but added more. They were immediately all over it.
Discovered that all but 2 of the openings to the mouse guard were closed. Grwwwl. In my haste to clear the snow, I put the guard upside down. Made the corection but saw more dead bees piled up behind the guard.
Also, it was kinda weird to see so many bees at the top. They were coming up and out of the inner cover opening.
Tipped the hive and found it was still heavy. I feel like the next few weeks are critical to the survival of the hive.
