For those of you who do not recall part one of this blog, let me take you back to late summer 2009:
I was going out to check my mail at my old apartment complex on Roper Mountain Road when I saw something moving out of the corner of my eye. I looked down and saw a copperhead striking at me directly in front of my mailbox. Long story short, I made a few calls and waited a while before actually collecting my mail!
Fast forward to last night, I was getting off the air and heading back to my office and getting ready to run to Best Buy with Booger. As I got to the door of my office, I noticed something lying in the doorway. At first I thought maybe Booger had dropped something and then I noticed it was a snake. Initially I thought it was a rubber snake and that someone was pulling a prank. Upon further inspection, I noticed how realistic the snake looked then saw it move. I threw my headphones down on the floor of the hallway and ran back down the hall towards the studio squealing that there was a snake in my office.
Booger came running to check it out followed by Diesel and, in the commotion, the snake began its retreat. By the time we found it and I was able to take a picture of the serpent, it had moved onto a shelf on the back wing of my desk.
Booger went and grabbed a shovel and blocked it off into a corner in my office while Diesel scooped it up and put it in one of the boxes I conveniently had lying around.
The three of us took it downstairs through the bay area and let the snake out into the woods behind the station. Judging by the size and markings on the snake, I'm assuming it was either a black corn snake or possibly a not fully grown black rat snake. Needless to say, I am a bit jumpy now in my office as I am writing this! Especially considering it may have dropped down from the vent that is positioned directly over my head!
