Greene... Don't know anybody who has such a thing off hand, but you just gave me a great idea. Hurray! Hurray! Wish I would have thought about it sooner. I have a big hand held hair dryer. Gonna get that puppy out, find the extension cord and melt me out. Doing the "wish I had a v8 ' head slap.

Did you see the news of the mess in Atlanta hwy? 2,000 folks had to strand their vehicles, deaths from this storm and lots of accidents. Already turning cold here again. Finally made it 20's and now will be in low teens again tonight if not single digits. Felt so bad for all them hundreds of kiddies that got stranded. You know it had to be scary for some of them to be more than 48 hours away from home.

MIndy.... Oh no!!!!!! How sad for you. So sorry you lost your bees. Crying It so hard to get colonies of bees to settle, produce and survive. Lots of work going into maintain hives. Hoping that you don't lose any more. Sad thing is not like you can bring them into the house either.

GGM had hives when we was growing up but have no idea what she did for them during winter in snow belt of OH. What about getting some metal trash cans or them what we call metal burn barrels down here. Would starting fire in them help. They will put off a lot of heat. Any smoke would keep the bees calm at least. Do the bees hibernate or go into some sort of domancy during winter or they still try and forge in such snow covered areas as yours?
