There’s no other way to put it...it was hot this past weekend on Lake Somerville! The best way to describe lake patrol is just like sitting in a frying pan; heat generated from above reflects off the water which puts us right in the middle. After almost 25 years of working out of a boat, it isn’t any easier but it makes the end of the day appreciative.
A few fish were caught and it seems people opted for a cooler Mother’s Day weekend as evident by the lack of boaters present. I feel everyone is holding back until Memorial Day weekend when things really explode.
Last week’s article referencing small mammals garnered a few snake calls and questions. The old adage, “The only good snake is a dead snake” isn’t always true. There are few non-poisonous snakes that do a good job of ridding flowerbeds and gardens of small rodents. The key of course is being able to identify the non-poisonous snake. For this, I would recommend searching the internet for pictures and other literature available for print. This way when confronted by a serpent, quick identification can be made.
