Well Terry, you know my pokes at you are basically good natured; I hope thats how you see it. Like an internet chess game.
BUT.... Tonight, at 8:15 while I was out in the garage, yet another baby sidewinder; thats 3 rattlers in, what? 2-3 weeks? Since June 03 none, and now this? Yea, its dead, and I left it there in the driveway in front of the garage to see if its there in the morning. I bet not. But I am thinking there must be a nest. Not Good. 2 S/W and 1 D/B all small.
My garage is big, 4 car, 960 sq ft, and well lit. With a big cement pad in front. Well lit inside and outside. And thats where I saw it, outside, slithering across the pad about 8 ft from the garage. I dont know where it came from, I can only guess; but I think I know. I mean, I am seriously wondering if theres a nest. I was just locking the garage down for the next 2 weeks. And BTW, when I am not in it, I ALWAYS shut the doors. And when I go in it, I always look cautiously. Never saw 1 in there, but.....
What are the odds of 2 being in the same area (50 yards max) in that time frame? Do you think nthere is a nest around here or what? Tommorow will be my last day here for 2 weeks, until Sept 29. This is getting worrisome.
