It’s rained hard here for days. The ground was already pretty well saturated, so it was no surprise that the snakes got flooded out of their holes. Still, I wasn’t too happy to hear that buzz that can’t be mistaken for anything else. He was only a little punk, but I skirted him anyway.
There are a lot of opinions about whether a baby rattler’s bite is more lethal than an older rattler’s bite. Like it matters. If you’re bit, you’re bit. Lawn mowers help. Oh come on. Not that way. I mean, they’re loud and they send vibrations into the ground making you the punk on the block. Mothballs help too,but they’re pricey and have to be renewed often. All in all, I’d rather be painting.
