Beware Of Snakes
Thanks to all the rain this spring...you may be seeing more snakes around your property. Wildlife control officials say the combination of wet weather and the start of the snakes' mating season means the critters are on the move. Experts say snakes are actually beneficial, working to control the rodent population. They say most snakes in North Texas are harmless -- except for water moccasins, copperheads and rattlesnakes.
This was a bulleton on our local online daily news. I find it pretty funny. What other snakes are the in East Texas? They should have said don't worry about the rat snakes or grass snakes but anything else..run like hell.
I almost stepped on one last summer when we were fishing in a creek. Eric was messing with me and I jumped back (almost directly on a snake). I still shudder thinking about it.
I have been wanting to go camping forever so I will brave the snakes so that I can sit outside and read and drink sun tea and fish and play dominoes and eat powdered sugered doughuts and fish and anything else I can do sitting or laying down in my lawn chair.
The greatest thing of all is that since my stomach is on the verge of scaring small children, I don't have to do anything but show up. Eric and E will have it all ready when I arrive at camp. Pretty awesome!!
