Snake Season Has Arrived Early Too
I have not seen a snake in my yard or garden yet.
However, our son was working in the woodland area this morning and he ran into one. It was non-venomous and was hurrying to get away from him because he was wielding a chain saw.
Tim was at a regional firefighter meeting yesterday in Durant and one of the firefighters there who was from someplace in southcentral Oklahoma said he'd already had a dog bitten by a copperhead that was out incredibly early.
Of course it is too early for snakes. However, they're apparently out and on the move already, and I guess I'd better start paying more attention to where I put my hands and feet when I'm out in the yard and garden.
Prior to now, I've only seen a snake out this early once. I was in the woods and encountered a pygmy rattlesnake around the very end of February or earliest March about 10 years ago.
