I am living in Virginia now but come from Maine. My question is this- HOW do you deal with the abundance of snakes? We have them in Maine for sure, but not like down here. I love living here and I love our home (which is in the woods btw) but I am SO scared of them. Had one poking it's head out of our soffit this spring, had one on the deck a few weeks after, had one in the flower bed after that and today had a big fat brown one right outside my window. Trying to tell myself we live in THEIR neighborhood and that's the way it is but I am so scared. Irrational? Totally. Can't seem to get past it. I tell myself lots of people live down here, some of them must be scared too. UGH I'm ready to sell the house and move back to the tundra.
