They found shelter in homes, cars, grocery stores, and barns. Kids helped their parents trap mice. Grocery store owners locked up as much food as they could. Mice were a health hazard. They destroyed property and cost people money. Remember the plagues God sent on Egypt? Mice were not among them. But what would it be like to have frogs everywhere? Read Exodus 8:1-15.
