Anyone splitting hives already?

Anyone splitting hives already?

I know it might be early for some but I'm on the Gulf Coast and our daytime temps are in the mid 70s now and my 1st colony is JAMMED full of bees.

I do single brood chamber management as I just don't like lifting the boxes. My goal is to switch to Long Langs but for now, I'm doing regular Langstroths. My brood chamber and the super that I left on over winter were literally jammed full both with bees, brood, honey and nectar. I feared they were going to swarm so I split them today. It was my first time splitting a hive so here's hoping I didn't mess things up too badly.
