    Just came across this pic of my old garden tractor set up for snow.

    Didn't even bother to take the mower deck off, lol.

    Maybe in my retirement years (if that ever comes), but for now I've got 20 beautiful, private, wooded acres, and it really doesn't snow that much here any more. That pic is from a few years ago. Yes, winter kinda sucks, but the other three seasons here are great.

    Snow is still on for here Friday, but rain will mix in so it won't accumulate. Supposed to be cold as a witch's titty here all next week though so kind of looking forward to that. I prefer cold when doing some things outdoors. Makes me less fearful there is going to be a copperhead about when I am clear-cutting brush for instance. I am restoring a storm drain ditch that runs through some sketchy brushy woods so it will give me a chance to work on it some. A section of it became clogged and backfilled which screws things up upstream for me during heavy rains so I am deepening and widening it all the way down just to make sure it can carry high volumes of H2O

    Lol, yup. Those are actually truck tire chains too. It worked surprisingly well. That was a good machine, I beat the heck out of her for many years.

    Copperheads are no fun, we even get them occasionally around here. My cat was in a tussle with what I thought was a copperhead last spring, turned out to be a milk snake. Good thing too, because it struck him a few times, lol. Crazy cat.

    My cats get into it with little snakes from time to time. Had to chase one down to get a green snake out of its mouth. The woods I call Creepy Hollow has tons of brush, fallen logs, holes, etc, and I have seen small copperheads in the area. Been years since I have seen a big one but if there are little ones, there is a big momma somewhere.

    I've heard the babies are more venomous than the big un's. We had a couple of babies in one of my sheds a couple of years ago. We used to have a 6 foot black that lived in that shed.

    That milk snake my cat was fighting with was at least a three footer. He's an idiot. He kills rabbits bigger than him.

    I have a friend that swears copperheads are in south Fl (they are only known to be in the panhandle) He met up with me downriver one day and told me a dead copperhead was upstream. I went to investigate, I brought back the dead Eel and said "not only do you not know what a copperhead looks like, but you cant tell a snake from a fish"
    I never let him live it down!

    Lol! There's one in every crowd. I used to work with a buddy who swore that milk snakes and copperheads were interbreeding to make a less venomous, but still dangerous cross breed. We used to tease him mercilessly about the "milk-head" snakes.

    It is quite amazing the ignorance some folks have when it comes to snakes!
