Down to 1 hive

Its been a busy last few days. My best friend is finally getting married and I'm returning the favor of best man. We leave in a few hours so I'll keep this short.

Talked to Dave Sunday night. He said it would be fine to combine both nucs and that the one hive would have a better chance of making it through the winter.

Just got back, combined both nucs into one standard 10 frame langstrom hive body. I wound up needing 3 extra new frames.

We'll check them when I get back. Hopefully everything goes well.
