Bees barely make the 2000 mile trip

Today we unloaded the bee hives after their long 2100 mile trip. Unfortunately, 3 of 5 hives didn't make it. The bees seemed to have frozen, most likely during the night we spent in Albuquerque. That night it dropped to an unexpected 15 degrees!

Oddly, the two hives that survived we're the two in the new style top bar hive. Not sure if that is a coincidence, but certainly seems interesting. Maybe something there?

The good news is, we were able to harvest a lot of honeycomb for candles and even write a bit of tasty honeycomb!
