Flowsnakes on a Surburb

As you can see, the tracks of many flowsnakes are visible on the road. Majestic, long-necked lamp posts survey the carnage with aloof disdain.

It is always important to know your enemy.

"I don't see any flowsnakes at all! Do you think they might be... invisible?!"

Best to hide until it all blows over, we decided.

Speedbump does NOT approved of flowsnakes. She watches them very closely to make sure that they don't try to come inside.

Wow, thats a whole lot of snow, never seen so much snow in m... hey, wait a minute, that's just a dusting. When you can measure it in feet, lemme know.

Is it a paralytic vemon the flowsnake has in its sting? That would explain why I've been hiding under duvets over the past few days, rather than get on with my packing and decluttering. I don't want to move...

@R: Often it seems to be left to the household cats to watch the perimeter. I wonder if we'll ever see a time when humans will take their share of the responsibility.

@M: Collaborator! >:-(

@Z: 1. You could measure any amount of snowfall in feet. In this case it would be a small fraction of a foot. 2. No-one would actually measure anything in feet, as that would be dumb.

@D: It is the kind of venom that turns arctic explorer's fingers black. Wishing to hide from flowsnakes is quite understandable though, as they are creepy and vicious.

Wise move, taking cover from the flowsnakes - though I'd advise heavier covers, preferably down-filled.

Thanks for the diagram of the flowsnake, here in California, we might not recognize one if it fell on us :)

Damnit. You got proper snow. Here it was little more than a sprinkling and gone within the day.

I'm amazed you have some flowsnakes over there...how often does that happen?

If you ever need more, we have abounding herds over here at the moment...measured height in cm thank you very much! :)

@T: Consider yourself lucky. May you never feel them nibbling on your own toes...

@DK: Flowsnakes are white, middle class and very much a part of mainstream culture - and so are uncomfortable hanging around with the likes of you, my friend.

@G: It snows pretty much every winter. The snow settles about once every two winters. And keep your flowsnakes to yourself!

Awww, cute. Even the flowsnake is cute. 'Wouldn't want one cooling my coffee, though.
