We are not planning on closing Beekman tonight. Despite the rain, the temperatures are pretty darn cold and look to stay in the low 40's. When it is this cold, we typically don't have any movement. We closed the road on Tuesday night but not much rain materialized and it was fairly cool with temperatures hovering in the mid-40's. But it was quite foggy and very humid. Nonetheless, only a handful of Wood frogs were seen crossing the road (and none by me!). There was quite a bit happening at the pools though. Loads of male Wood frogs were just lounging around on the surface and intermittently chorusing along with a few Spring peepers. There were also a few Spotted salamander egg masses and plenty of Spotted's slithering around in the pools through the flashlight beam.
It's warm, rainy and humid. There is a break in the rain forecast for a few hours and then more rain, possibly even a bit heavy for a few hours after dark as a cold front moves through. Assuming that happens, (and maybe even if it doesn't but it stays mild and humid and damp) it could trigger amphibians to move around. PLEASE READ THE IMPORTANT MANDATORY SAFETY INFORMATION IF YOU VENTURE OUT TONIGHT.
