    It was a garter snake. Not poisonous but to me that doesn't matter neither.

    That is my fear that there are more. I just haven't seen them yet and we have way too many places for them to hide in the basement.

    Bleach - I'll take stock in bleach if it will work on garter snakes

    Trust me by heart did skip a couple beats as I was sucking in air and trying to get my wits about me.

    Pat - too funny! As you others are too.
    No, seriously, I would have died. From the heart attack it would have given me.

    Mice I can deal with they do not slither. There is no food source down there. I truly believe it came in through a basement window. I just hope there are no more that might have babies.

    Who would have thought a snake would get so much attention on a quilting forum?

    I just had a tarantula in my kitchen two nights ago....omgosh...I screamed....I know they won't attack unless they are threatened but I had just turned on the kitchen light and took a step and looked down and there it was almost touching my foot. I called my hubby but those things can move fast when they want to and it flew across the floor and hide under the cabinets. He got stuck on one of my glue traps so we got him the next day. A couple years ago I had a California King in my food pantry, my husband put him out in the yard, they are good to have around. And, the year before that a Rattle Snake on the front porch, John shot his head off and we cut the rattle off for the grand kids. I live in the desert we have lots of critters.

    omg, this sent shivers up my spine and I'm quivering all over! I hate snakes too.

    Just the other day, my friend found a baby snake in her hallway. I screamed when she told me..... if it was a baby there are probably more somewhere!

    Even if it was a dead snake, IT'S STILL A SNAKE!!! I was telling MM about this and he was dying. When I told him how fast the dog made it up the stairs, I thought he was going to spew coke out his nose! He knows if there was one in our house, I too, would be at a hotel/motel/our lake place and I would never, ever return!!! EVER!!!!

    Years ago, there was a pet snake that got loose in one of the big apartment complexes here and it would pop up on random apartments after going thru the pipes. I had to send deputies out one night and they asked for the sergeant, knowing he hated snakes as much as I do!! They told him they had caught it and put it in their trunk and it was now somewhere in their car and they could not find it anywhere.....he told them to have it towed to the garage and they could find it in the morning! Of course, they were just messing with him.

    I would not be doing any laundry, either. I think I'd be going out and buying lots of underwear and socks!
