Snake ID for Wayne??
I live 'bout 20 miles inland from Charleston, SC. Twice this summer I have seen a orangey-brown snake in the pine straw (with a bit a leaf litter) along the foundation of my house. They are about 4 ft long, medium thickness, no distinct pattern, and they ran away too fast to see what shape the head was or to photograph. Both times they ran under the porch. I don't really care what it actually is, long as it's not dangerous to my Scottish Terrier, who wouldn't have the sense to stay away!
