I opened the beehive over the weekend. My suspicions were confirmed that our bees have all died. We are not quite sure what caused the death. It could have been mites, and infection, too much moisture that caused freezing or starvation. Although there was an entire box of honey left, they might not have broken the cluster to find the honey. Needless to say we have another package of bees on order, they are coming April 15th. Year one was a learning curve, hopefully year two will be more successful in overwintering bees.
