The year that we moved to TX (2009) was a snake year. We saw several snakes around our property including one baby rattle snake, a ringneck snake, a huge bullsnake, and the snake in our bathroom. Last year was much different. I saw one in the garage and Josh found a couple when he was digging around with his tractor. We never saw any on the road or trail around our house, and we walk the property nearly everyday.
I think this year is going to be a big snake year again. I've already seen 3, nearly stepping on 2 of them. Last night I came within 1-2 feet of this one while walking around the yard.
