After a couple weeks of absence, the snakes have reappeared, which is a good thing (they eat the slugs so we can keep the garden chemical free). Today I saw a pair of two foot long yellow racers and one six inch long yellow racer.
Still no reappearance of the mystery snake. We saw this weird on. It was about 6 inches long and the body had the markings of a red racer but it had a huge head like vipers normally do, but I've never heard of a viper with a red stripe.
Google, here I come. I WILL know what it is. :-)
Oh, and a mice has move into the garage. It will be sent it's eviction notice shortly.
