Plenty of snakes this year with all the rain. Pygmy rattlers burrow under the slabs of houses and driveways. Rain floods them out and they hang around in the beds and under bushes. Agressive little pissers, not even afraid of a trimmer. Wicked fast too. That's why we wear high top boots and long pants. You'll see the county guys and inmates wearing snake guards when they're hand hogging ditches.
