The bees were fed 1:1 sugar syrup yesterday, and they barely touched it, which is a good sign, they are not starving as I thought. There were some good activity during the sun breaks yesterday, foragers were bringing pollen. Today was hail and freezing rain, so I'll let the quart of sugar syrup. I also added an "attic" to the hive, since the bottom of the roof was moldy. The attic box was filled with wood shavings and paper.
So far so good for this year.
