Fiorella sighted a copperhead yesterday, and she didn't like it. One of her neighbors had told her they were out and about, but Fio didn't expect to see one lying in her own driveway. In fact, this is the first snake she's ever seen anywhere on the property.
Here's how it went down. Fio was walking Sonia Dog up to the mailbox and spotted what looked like a bright-colored inflated toy of some sort on the edge of the driveway. It was squiggled like this: nununu, which made her realize it was a snake. A beautiful snake--bright orange with a black and red design on it. It was also fat, like it had just eaten a squirrel. And it didn't move. Obviously, it was dead.
Fio took Sonia back to the house and had Husband walk back up the drive with her to see the snake, but it was nowhere to be seen. Obviously, it wasn't dead.
Fio is a little nervous.
