I always take note of the first hearing of spring peepers for the year.
Happened this week here... the last two afternoons I have heard them.
It is a welcome sound and to me means that while winter may still show off a little, it is officially on the way out and spring is coming.
Soon the grass will be greening, smallies will start hitting in the river and creek and about a month or little more I will be seeing my first early bird 3 leafers of the year. Earliest one I have ever seen was in 03/18.
I am sure some of you northerners... are still knee deep in snow and ice... but down here in the south (southern middle TN)... I can see (and hear) the change coming on.
For those who may not know what a spring peeper is... youtube vid below.
east Tn here, weather's been terrible all past week nothing but wind and rain. I was looking at forcast, and it's suppose to be in 60's and 70's here the rest of this month, and most of next month too. I guess it could always change, but doesn't look like much more if any winter weather left here in east Tn. I'm ready for some spring camping and fishing.
Warm n raining high winds high water really messing with my trapping. But enjoying the warm days. Been busy with my cows 9 of 15 have freshened lost one. Really enjoy watching the little buggers running and playing around up in the barn yard.
