Dawn & I went to the farm to dump some yard waste and check the feeders, and my concern was correct: the feeders were severely clogged with sugar. The 2:1 solution didn't work in the colder weather. I cleaned out the crystals from the jars and lids and diluted them down with hot water and stuck them back out on the hives. The bees immediately proclaimed a collective "Thank You!" I'll probably run up Monday evening to check on them if time allows.
