Spring Skis Bees Knees

The first official days of spring and there is still a snow pack of 10 inches on the back pastures.
The spring sun entices the bees out but many don't make it back to the hive before the big chill.  
Poor little buggers. 
 I saw dozens of piles of them and wondered if this was due to poor bee management, 
but apparently it is usual.

This week we've seen it dip to well below freezing.
Honey, don't put away the long johns yet.
