It was THIS big!

Yes, this (minus the actual snake) is what greeted us at our swimming pool yesterday afternoon. I had the kiddos dressed in their swimsuits and out the back door when I catch sight of a snake skin on the ground next to our pool. After I wrangled the kids back inside, I peered out the window to see if I could spot him! I wasn't going to take any chances - this momma doesn't do snakes - no matter the size, kind, etc. Swimming was off the table for the day. N called Lance at the office to tell him that "momma is freaking out!" Now, I wasn't really freaking out, but I have to say, I was very aware when in the garage or front yard. I wasn't about to let one sneak up on me!!! By the time Lance arrived home, the winds were blowing and the temperature had dropped 20 degrees, so the swimming was not to be. We were all very disappointed. Perhaps we'll try again today....if momma can get up her courage!!!

This momma doesn't do snakes either and neither does the dad. Shane spotted one the other day and out came the Snakeway (yes, its a real product). Evidently snakes don't like the smell. Just sprinkle it where ever you need to. Shane's surrounded the house with it. BTY...the racoon has left the building. Evidently when we boarded it up, it freaked and when we opened the hole it took off with the babies in tow. Now onto repairs. would think we live in the middle of the country or something.
