Memo to snakes: If you must lie in the roadway, lie parallel with the traffic lanes–makes you a smaller target and increases your chances of being missed


This guy was sunning himself on the warm asphalt of Pine Log Road yesterday afternoon when I ran over him with my car.

I didn’t realize it was a snake until a fraction of a second before my right wheels squashed him – no time to avoid.

I hate snakes, but I can’t help feeling a little remorse over accidentally killing a non-venomous snake that does more good than harm.

Sorry, pal.
