  Snakes!  Yes, it is that time of the year.  This past week my hubby has killed three cottonmouths.  it started out a few days ago with my 14 year old son heading out to weed the garden.  As he was walking toward the garden, he was about 10 feet from the back of the house and walked past his go-cart.  Well, guess what struck out at him?  Yep, a cottonmouth.  Luckily, it did not get him.  Hubby was outside at the time too and went and killed it.  Then yesterday, hubby and son started yard work cleaning paths to the different gardens, around the yard, etc. so we could see things better.  They found 2 more cottonmouths and a baby one.  All dead now.  We live in the country and know to always be on the look out but it seems they are out worse this year than past years.  Have you had any run-ins with snakes in your area this year?
