Checked 3 of the big hives since we had some rain lately and the temp was down to 76.  (Although the 72 percent humidity didn't help.)  All had brood and stores.  Not sure yet if we'll get to harvest any for ourselves.  Hope for more rain and lots of nectar producing flowers.  The swarm hive had left after the comb collapse which killed their queen.  So I took some of their old comb and put it into one of the big hives for safe keeping.
