Scientists are still speculating why urban bees show increased resilience and productivity - perhaps their success is due to less pesticide use, more varied diets and an urban heat-island effect that keeps bees warmer during cold winter months.
For February, of course, that's normal, and that's why the French Toast Alert has been upped a notch. It's the 70-degree temps we had yesterday and have today that are, no, not in the least surprising or alarming or anything.
