Kathy Williams of Twin Falls started her day with a visitor. Her home is near the canyon rim where sometimes the neighbors stop by without an invitation. And, no, this isn't the neighbor that wants to borrow a cup of milk. This one comes in with shiny skin and sometimes a rattle. Imagine waking up to this huge snake as you begin your day.

To my eyes, this looks like a bull snake. If you're a snake expert, feel free to correct me. Regardless, it's not what I want to wake up next to. Kathy is braver than me since she actually took the time to take the photograph and share with us. As for me, there would be a huge human size hole in the wall which I would have dashed through if this had been my home.
