Blogger's Note: Since I wrote the post this morning, I forgot to make note of a couple of things. First, friends Marty and Evan both posted photos of large black snakes that they had seen over the weekend...definitely confirming that the snakes are on the move. And at least two other friends have mentioned the unusual number of roadkill snakes this year. Finally, one colleague said, "Black rat snakes eat other snakes and rats. Slow down, people!"
So I'm not the only one seeing this roadkill phenomenon.
