Happy Spring… Well, Almost
Spring is almost here in the Village.
Just yesterday we had a hint of it in the air. It was a nice warm day with a refreshing spring shower.
However, winter just isn’t ready to give up completely yet, so it sent the polar vortex down and we ended the day with several inches of snow.
The mice made the best of it, though. Just after the rain, we trekked to the outskirts of the Village to see if we could find the end of the rainbow that had appeared overhead. We did! More importantly, we met a new friend there, Sam Rock.
Sam is a little mouse, but he’s also a leprechaun, so his job is to follow rainbows everywhere and keep a sharp eye out on his most prized treasure, his pot of gold.
By the time we returned to the Village, there was a chill in the air and we caught our first glimpse of several lonely snowflakes. A few hours later, those snowflakes were joined by many, many friends creating several inches of snow.
It’s been a tough winter, but the mice are resilient and always try to make the best of any situation. After a bit, the mice started coming out of their homes and you could hear laughter and giggling everywhere as little mouselets were making snowmouse angels and constructing snowmice.
One father mouse even built a snowfort so he could have a snowball fight with his little mouselets. It’s hard say whether or not he won, though!
It was an unusual weather day for the Village, but one the mice made the best of.
