The peepers are back!

A sure sign of spring around here is the sound of frogs croaking in the swampy area behind our house. I heard them today.

I heard the peepers! I wish I were tech savvy enough to record them and post a link here.

Oh wait. Listen!

You can find just about anything on the Internet, can't you?

So the peepers I heard today were a little ... slow. And there were just a few of them. Must be only the really hardy (or really dumb) ones come out this early. It's still March, for crying out loud! But if you listen to that audio clip again and turn the volume way up you'll get a taste of what it sounds like around here when spring is truly on its way. The sound is absolutely, deafeningly beautiful.
