Ever since that incident I have been terrified that I would run into another snake on my daily walks with Rage. I have kept my eyes on the ground as we walked watching for snakes.
A few nights ago Luke and I had run to Publix and were coming home at about dusk. As we were about to turn into our driveway we say a SNAKE in the middle of road, right in front of our house. Luke jumped out to investigate while I stayed in the car with the headlights shining on the snake. That little snake (he was only about 24" long) was a feisty guy and he struck a Luke!! He started to slither away into the grass when I remembered my camera and handed it to Luke. The pictures aren't very good, but at least you can see him.
Now I am definitely terrified of our snake infested neighborhood... yuck!! I HATE SNAKES!!!!
