Regional autumn hive losses in Ontario, Canada (north GTA to west of Kingston)?

Wondering if any fellow Ontarians have had a particularly bad autumn. We lost 4/5 hives from mid September to present in Mount Albert, ON, and another beekeeper near us suddenly lost a few of her hives as well around the same time (not sure how many, but two or more). A fellow beekeeper about 10 minutes from Newmarket, ON lost 3/4 of his hives, and a friend about 30 min west of Peterborough lost 5/6. Not mites, not foulbrood – but all of us have had these unusual major losses in only a few weeks this fall. None of us or our more senior mentors have had anywhere close to such a bad year post harvest (particularly at this time).

Anyone else in the region having a similar experience, or does misery just love company?
