Things are starting to get cold now in Minnesota and all nature's creatures are looking for a nice warm place to stay for the winter -- including me. Today's photo shows a frog who found one of my optical network terminals a nice, warm place to hang out. Unfortunately, he decided to place himself right on top our our phone ringer circuit. This circuit generates over 100 V when ringing a phone. Apparently, someone called this customer after the frog had positioned himself on top of the ringer circuit. Frogs do not do well with 105 V placed across their little bodies.
