They're everywhere right now seems like. Last week I saw 4 and heard of two others people found on their porch. Saw two about twenty feet from each other dead on the road yesterday.

My buddy called a few days ago and said he had one in his backyard. I live a block away so I went and caught it. His two year old son and him had been in the backyard for 45 minutes before his dog found it by the porch. Had his son seen it he would pick it up because he's not a bit scared of snakes.
