A good sign of spring: Big Run peepers peep

April 5, 2013

BIG RUN — First-year frogcaster Jeff London has reported that the tiny peeper frogs began to sing in the Big Run Swamp at 2:10 p.m. on Friday.

London said that was their first look through the ice, and they have two
more to go before spring settles in for good.

London had predicted earlier in the week that it wasn't going to occur until Friday or today.

Up until this year, April 2 was the latest the tiny frogs had peeped, but now, the new longest record is established
as April 5.
