March 7, 2012

BIG RUN — It’s almost time for the peepers of Big Run to let everyone know that spring will soon arrive.

“Any day now,” says Big Run resident John London, who has been tracking the peepers since 1972.

London frequently walks near the swamps of Big Run to listen for the peepers, but as of yet, he has has not heard anything.

When the weather gets warm enough, the peepers will emerge from the mud and begin to peep, but London believes they have been affected by the strange winter this year.

“I have not seen a winter this mild,” he said.
