So far, very small, unsuccessful bubble nests.

Are you trying to breed your FL fish up North or are you getting new fish up there? If you are using the fish from FL, you may need to duplicate FL water parameters to get them to go again. ( I had the reverse when I moved my fish from NJ to FL but once I went back to the NJ parameters, the fish spawned.) If you are getting fish up there, I find water temps to be very important with Bettas. You may need to up the temp a degree or 2 or drop it a degree or 2 to get them stimulated for spawning. ( My sweet spot here was 78-82 degrees.) It could also be a barametric pressure thing up there as well.
There is another possibility, they might just not like the snow up there.
Just some possibilities for you.
