Bee rated

One of my bee hives is dead. Thousands of dead bees litter the doorway of the hive. Thousands more are dead on the inner cover. I don't know exactly what killed them. I assume it was the bizarre weather. Sixty degrees for a few days and then below freezing for the last week. They just got confused and perished thinking it was Spring.
I haven't checked the other hive yet. I saw a few bees flying around it yesterday, but it certainly wasn't the amount it should have been. I fear if it isn't dead, it soon will be.
My new bees are coming on March 30th. At least now I don't have to worry about my backordered supplies making it here in time. I can just reuse the stuff I have. And now I don't have to worry about re-queening the hives either. And hey when my new stuff does get here, I'll be all set if there is a swarm this year.
