oh my god. we're staying at pop in september... i'm going to be SOOO PARANOID. yes it's the south, but you still shouldn't have to worry about snakes in your luggage. i live in the south... we see snakes sometimes.... I STILL HATE THEM!! a couple of years ago my mom had a snake in her kitchen. i have friends who have found them in their laundry rooms too. just the thought makes my skin crawl.
