Big Run peepers on the brink of their latest recorded first appearance

April 1, 2013

BIG RUN — It has now been over two weeks since spring officially arrived on the calendar, and still, there's been nary a peep from the peeper frogs in Big Run, which is how most locals decide whether or not spring has officially arrived.

"It's hard to believe that we still haven't heard the tiny frogs announce the arrival of spring," said Jeff London, owner of Big Run Carpet and now resident Peeper watcher.

London said the average first day of peeping has been on March 20, the date for the official arrival of spring as far as the calendar is concerned.

SUMMERVILLE — Author and Summerville native Kendra Woodring — who writes under the name K.R. Woodring — returned to her roots on Saturday with a book signing held in her original hometown at the Summerville Public Library.

In fact, Woodring said she grew up "literally in the backyard" of the library, so close by that her mother's property touches corners with the library's.
