A Cold Front Blows Into Texas Along With Venomous Snakes
Overnight a cold front has blown in. Currently it is only 67 degrees at my location, heading to an eventual high of only 73 and an eventual low of only 59.
I may need to turn on the furnace to keep from shivering.
But, currently I have my windows open. Which I do not remember doing previously at this time of the year.
I read disturbing news this morning in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
Venomous snakes like rattlesnakes and copperheads are appearing in increased numbers inside the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex due to a perfect storm of weather conditions. Apparently snakes with a bad bite like wet, humid weather.
I have had myself venomous snake encounters in years previous in Texas, but none this year. All I have seen this year have been cuddly little snakes that posed no biting threat.
I think I will go swimming now before it gets any colder.
