What is the sound of one piston slapping?
Illustration for article titled New Snake Day!

I’m in the middle of teaching an online class and my immediate neighbor bangs on my door. Tell the kids I ‘ll be back in a sec, and my neighbor tells me there’s a snake a few houses down and the neighbors are terrified. I ask if it’s rattling and she says no. I head over, see a good looking Arizona ground snake who has managed to scare my neighbor onto to the hood of their car. Grab the snake, who is real friendly and loves cuddles, and hand him over to my daughters. Free entertainment while I finish my class. Dropped him/her in my garden for some added pest control. This guy was mostly greens/browns. I’ve had several orange and striped ones in my yard over the years. Snake didn’t get the memo it was suppose to socially distance.
