Left for France and follow up

8/29-9/11: we were gone to France and when we returned I noted that only ~1" of syrup was gone from the jars.  It had rained 3 1/2" while we were gone - there was a hard frost over night on 9/12.

9/16  Tuesday: removed bottom boxes and kept 3 boxes on each hive.

this was the entrance with the mouse guard added after I removed the bottom box

9/22 Monday: Hive B/2 one jar was empty, the other jars were low so I refilled all 4 with 2:1 syrup
