Froggie Froggie Night.....

Last night at the library, in addition to handing out pencils, we watched an amazing downpour. On Weather.com, we zoomed into street level, and a deep purple red blotch was parked over our campus. One minute the sky was clear, and the next it was like a fire hose was being used on our window. Students even looked up; students who usually will not even bat an eye if you inform them a tornado is in the area.

My shift was over at 9:30, and as I stepped out into the warm muggy air, I was surrounded by music; frogs rejoicing in their good fortune of heavy rain and warm night air.

I video'd the sound, and swung my camera around so you can see the library as well. It looks a bit like a science fiction location, but the view is fantastic from the third floor, where I often sit and watch the sky from the window as I work.

Enjoy 40 seconds of Frog Sounds, as heard last night in Houston Texas.

I loved the rhythm. It felt like a rap could be added to it for a special treat. Now if you would have done that while videoing, I would have been really impressed.

I do like the idea of sitting at those windows watching the sky.

Jill, that is so cool! It almost sounds like sheep in the background. What a grand library you work at! Those windows would be a total distraction for me! :)
