THE COPPERHEAD HOUR
This fine, warm Spring weather has brought out copperheads (though this snake is active in cooler weather too). My mate Marty saw a big one recently on the path at Jordans Crossing; a friend of my wife (who lives off Penrose Rd) has had one in her front yard (her neighbour had one too; perhaps it was the same individual). So, watch your step when you're out and about. Though snakes will do everything they can to avoid you, and don't go out of their way to pursue you (no matter what people might claim), a cornered copperhead would strike if pushed.
