again! really?

Good morning.
It snowed again last night.
But that's not what the post's title is about.
More on that later.
 Spring is just not showing up yet. You can see, the pond is still frozen. Normally, in about 2 weeks, the daffodils should be in full bloom. There are no signs of them even starting to come up!
Anyway....
The power has finally come back on after being out for just over an hour. I was online this morning, and all of a sudden, black. We have a couple of hurricane lamps that I lit to find my way around the house. To be sure it wasn't just our house, I have 2 things to check. One, in the neighbors property, near the back corner of our yard, sits a wind shear tower used by the near-by airport.
You can't see it in this pic, but there's a red light at the top that's always on. It wasn't. Second, if I walk out near the end of the driveway, I can see the traffic light down the street a ways. It was out also. So, I called in a report, and waited.
There's not much you can do without power, but I did have my fully charged laptop and tablet. That kept me entertained until the power was back on.
Now back to the post title. I cleaned the Salon yesterday morning, got a quick chiro adjustment and came home. Got Craig up and did our usual Monday routine. Back home, I decided it was time to check the water levels in the 2 mo-ho house batteries. They were fine. I also checked the inside of the mo-ho for any signs of mice. Sure enough, a trap had caught another mouse! That's the 3rd one this winter. We've never had mice in the mo-ho in the winter before. I don't know what's going on. Thankfully I'm getting them with the traps. I re-baited the traps and even added a couple more for good measure.
probably won't be doing much today, I'm suppose to be working in the yard. It's suppose to be spring. But it's not looking like that is going to happen anytime soon.. :-(
And that's all I got.
