I showed a log cabin today in the country by Martinsville, Indiana with some very noisy frogs.

The rolling hills just South of Indianapolis east of Martinsville was a great drive today to go and show this log cabin on 5 acres that was listed by another Realtor.  Driving up the long gravel drive, I heard this very loud strange noise, very loud.  The  first thing I thought was Locust but I didn't think it was the right season.  It is the Middle of March I thought as I drove up the drive to this Log cabin on this hill that looked out over the valley and low land that this incredible noise was coming from..   My buyers came right on time.  The whole family got out of the car.  Husband, wife, mom, dad and sister.  I immediately asked them if they knew what that noise was.  The wife said she thought it was frogs mating but she wasn't sure.  The sound of the frogs were with us through out the viewing of this property.  The husband commented that he thought he would go crazy if he had to listen to that noise all the time.  Turns out the frogs do this for only a couple of days a year but as cozy as this log cabin was it wasn't the right one for them and the decision wasn't based on frog noise, thank goodness.
