Wow Mike! I'm the same exact way guy - and it is probably an irrational fear - because I have read of similar stories in the past... and I hate (petrified) of snakes.
About 5 years ago I looked out our window and saw this huge snake laying in the front yard. It was approximately 6 feet long. I went out on the front porch, checking it out, and I thought it was someone's exotic "pet" that maybe got loose so I called the county game warden. He had me describe the snake, and asked if I had any pine trees on the property, which I do. He then said it was a corn (pine) snake, and that's where they make their home. YEAH, BUT DO THEY GET THIS FRIGGIN BIG? LOL
It ended up slithering away into the big pine next to my house, and I said to myself... "OK. That tree has to come down." Whenever I mow around it I keep a watchful eye waiting for that snake to poke it's head out. LOL
Rachel's senior year in high school, she was in Animal Management, she brought home all types of critters. I called her Ellie Mae Clampett. I went into her room one day though and she had brought home a snake. She was sitting at the computer playing with this thing. I about died right there. I told her that thing does not, under any circumstances, come out of her bedroom.
Last summer I hit a garter snake with the weed whacker while trimming around some landscaping timbers next to my driveway. The snake went in the air, the tool went in the air, and I was in the house before any hit the ground. LOL
