While at work this morning, I got a cellphone call from my wife. Seems that while she and my son were doing some exploring down by the creek, they ran across their first snake. My son wanted to play with it while my wife wanted to go the other way. She ended up using a stick to push it into the creek. Their exploratory hike abruptly ended and she said she will be leaving that kind of stuff to me.

The temps are in the upper 50’s – low 60’s which I think prematurely drew him out of hibernation. He’s in for a rude surprise this weekend when temps are going back down to freezing.
