At first glance I thought you were having a snake BBQ!

Hello clodhopper, are you sure that is not your pet snake? What town do snakes climb up on trucks? I bet you are trying to scare people from coming to NC!

Cool Corolla

We were in Corolla-northern most outerbanks area in April. There were deer in the front yds and running down the raod. It was awesome. We wanted to seethe wild ponies and even killed my car on the beach trying to find them-none to be found though. The people there were awesomely friendly. Too touristy for me and I really hate hurricanes! It is gorgeous though.

Default afraid of snakes???

I have to laugh at y'all leaving comments about how scary snakes are. You stand a much better chance of drowning, being struck by lightning, or dying from a fall when you venture into the outdoors, than you do from dying by snakebite!
As a matter of fact, you stand a MUCH better chance of dying in an automobile crash on your way to NC than you do of dying by a venomous snakebite once you're here.
Snakes are part of the landscape, always have been ...always will. No, we're not "over run" with them, but they are around. Learn to deal with them or learn to live somewhere else.

Maybe, but not when there's a water moccasin in your kitchen or a copperhead on your front porch. You're welcome to come on over and bang that book *larnin* over their heads though!

Regards,

Cassie

I was saying to myself what snakes (besides the politicians) since I have never seen one yet?

That is until last night as I was bringing my garbage can from roadside back to my house. There I saw a little eight inch black grass snake on the side of my house in my North Raleigh subdivision.
