What a differance a day makes: the Snow Hive Melt Down one day later.
This picture was taken 24 hours after the image in the previous post.
The snow on the side has melted and fallen down and away from the lower hive body.
The hive is in a shaded alcove caused by extensions on the buildings on each side of my fully attached house. Daytime temperatures only got up to 37 degrees for a short time the day after the storm.
The Little Honeys must have partied hardy all night in their Mead Hall, burning the beeswax candles at both ends to have generated that much heat.
