Spring at our house is also known as mud season. The unpaved driveway becomes a big squelchy mess. The basement floods. Today the water is trickling in, stream-like from the back of the house. The sump pump is unfortunately at the other end. The husband said "I have no idea how to fix this."
I said: "I need a boat to do the laundry (okay, perhaps just boots)!"
The next thing I know I am being summoned downstairs to "take a look at this." That is never a good sign. I usually need a camera.

The bigger question is, what do we do with him? It might be warm enough to release him outside. Preferably far away from the house. Maybe in the neighbors yard (just kidding).
I asked if this was the same snake that used to live in our kitchen (kitchen snake). But that was a milk snake and this is a garter snake. Duh! And you wonder why I have nightmares.
