Sun Surf And Snails???

So as you know we are getting ready to move to Florida.  Ahh the fun of moving to a new place.  The excitement and adventure of a new place is one to be relished.

But in every life a little rain must fall.  Right now mine is all the interesting news happening around Florida.  First its the Burmese pythons killing off all the indigenous wildlife... then its the sink holes swallowing people and now its the Giant African Land Snail starting an invasion of southern Florida. 

According to Reuters news feed they can "grow as big as a rat and gnaw through stucco and plaster." and eats "pretty much anything that's in their path and green."

If they move up the state to the pan handle (where we will be)  its going to be a heck of a fight having my garden.  I wonder if a dog chews on one will it make him sick?  Ughh!! one more thing to worry about.

Well I'm still excited about moving.  Its kind of a pain in the butt ...but there is a lot to be said for exploring new places and I can't wait to see what we find!

Sounds like you'll eventually have some critters to contend with. Yikes.

Have a terrific day. :)
