Michelle is visiting her mom in Florida. Apparently her mom has a bit of a squirrel problem in the backyard. So she got some plastic snakes and spread them around to scare the squirrels.

Here is Michelle's email verbatim:

No ones afraid of the plastic snakes any more... Mom saw a lizard sitting on the back of one sunning himself!

Oh and get this! They bought one that expanded when you add water... Well it rained... But he just grew into a big mushy log... So they brought him in... He shrunk back to size and now scares any critters that come into the garage.

There are real snakes here too... Thankfully i haven't seen any yet.

Wait..there is more. Michelle left yesterday and when we went out into the lanai today to feed the fish that are in the pond a big black racer scurried away in front of us. We extimate 3 to 4 ft. long. There are REAL ones out there...maybe they'll chase the squirrels away...I don't think so since our neighbor feeds them.
OH WELL. They are cute even if they chew on the house.
