Would someone please explain how these threads pop up from time to time?

Here is what bothers me more:
Quote:

Heavy snowfall blanketed parts of the US Midwest on Monday, prompting hundreds of cancelled flights and icy conditions for road travelers, officials warned, with the northeast bracing for the system as it rolled towards the Atlantic.

Blizzard warnings were issued for parts of the Dakotas and the north central state of Minnesota as an Arctic airmass brought a cold front and localized heavy snowfall from Illinois to New York state, the National Weather Service said in a statement early Monday.

So very true about not wanting to get that close. We are pretty sure my son was bitten my a juevenile, but it was still a pretty darn big snake. Certainly not somehting to be messed with.

They look fairly similar to the indigo snake or black racer, which are not poisonous. Can really only tell them apart if you are close up to the snake.

Thank you for your help. I eventually plucked up the courage to google them and have a good look. My DD nearly stood on a snake in October. What worried me more than anything was that I had no idea what it was. I know it's a bit late if you step on one, but I would have felt better if I knew for some reason. Your info was very helpful.

A while back, someone posted a saying that had to do with poisonous snakes. It went something like '_____________ into _____________ kills a fellow......" Does anyone know exactly how it goes? TIA!

I'm not sure if I'm remembering it right, but I think it's "Yellow next to black is a friend of Jack." and "Yellow next to red, Fred is dead."

I'm not sure on that, though.

well, we did raise Corn snakes at one time, and were card-carrying members of the Chicago Herpetological Society. (yes, I knew this about him when I married him)

Thanks for these responses! I heard the guys on Swamp Wars talking about these sayings the other night!

Happy to report that I was at POR for 5 nights in June and no snake sightings!

My grandson caught a small gators on his fishing line last month, when we were at Fort Wilderness fishing. the gator was a little bit over a foot long. Guess who had to cut it off the line... That's right me... At first the lady who worked over by the pond want me to see if I could get the line off without cutting it.. I said no as it's too close to his mouth. There was no way I was going to try to take it out of the side of his mouth. It's bad enough I had to pick him up in the first place. LOL I must say that it made my grandson day, as thats all he talked about.

Snakes

We had a snake slither out in front of us as we were coming off the Kali River Rapids. I picked my daughter up by her arm, poor thing, so that she would not step on him. That seemed to scare the snake and he slithered back into the brush. A CM came up right away to make sure that it was a harmless snake...I didn't stick around to find out!

Wow, gators are hard to catch! Are you sure he didn't catch a Gator Gar? Their head looks just like a small gator, but they are actually a fish. My son has caught them many times in lakes in central FL.
