copperhead road

Yesterday as I drove back to my office during lunch, I saw a copperhead snake in the middle of the road. Copperheads may be venomous, but they have a rather appealing coloration. It's unusual to see them on a roadway far away from woodland.

Tne snake kept trying to get off the road, but cars would intervene. The cars would not hit the snake, but they would impede its progress. When I see an unleashed dog or cat near a busy roadway, I always whisper "be careful, pal, be careful", as if the dog or cat could hear me. I found myself whispering words of concern and care to a copperhead, and I hope he made it home all right.
