The hive looks OK. i keep seeing dead bees outside the entrance, there are still live ones inside doing housekeeping duty. Temps have been damp but warmer the last 2 weeks, so they are a little more active. I checked the back door, there is still some fondant there, so I added another small piece for them. They became irritated when I pushed it in so I quickly closed up the hive.
Looks like they might make it through winter (knock on wood).
