What is it with the snakes this week? Here's another one that found his way into my backyard. But this one is a rattler and I had him removed by a proper snake wrangler. My humble push broom is no match for this vile viper! This photo shows him at the bottom of a removal bucket. He was taken to a galaxy far far away - yay!
I'm a transplanted New Yorker who loves the Tucson climate. On New Year's Day I have a bit of fun calling my (snowbound) east coast friends to announce that I'm drinking coffee while sitting on my patio. (:
