This was posted in chat today and I felt it was too important to be missed by the chat box scrolling. .

Afternoon all! Craig from VCA here. Just a quick PSA to remind you to watch out for snakes this season. We are averaging a bite every 7-10 days at the animal hospital. Two have been neurological venom snakes and both dogs died from the effects. They have been primarily in the Holcomb and Hannah Flats area, but the last one was over by the gun club on North Shore. That was one of the fatalities, so we just wanted to help spread the word. Its a busy snake season and we do have hybridized snakes carrying neurotoxic venom...not just the traditional hemotoxic variety.

I tracked down this recent blog post from the website of SCM member Pawdlife: [Click Here]
It's got a bunch of good details about rattlesnakes around the Big Bear area.

Some Mojave snakes have adapted to be both Neurotoxic and Hemotoxic. This makes their bites more difficult to treat, as you don't know which type or mix of venom a particular population may have.

Thanks for the link Jelly.... it says in the article they live at an altitude up to 5000 ft. Big bear city sits at 6700 ft. are they still a threat, or is the article wrong?

When you’re happy you enjoy the music, when you’re sad you understand the lyrics.

The ecology in Baldwin Lake is very similar to lower elevations. We have beavertail cactus, sage brush, rabbit brush, desert prickley poppy - and Mojave snakes. It just is a bit colder in winter.

Get your dogs avoidance trained! It saves their lives- and could save yours as they alert to snakes much earlier than our senses notify us!!

I looked up the current outage map on the Edison website and I do not see a yellow triangle with an exclamation point over Big Bear. Is the power back on now, SLM?

SLM - Do you think it could be maintenance work? SCE has been upgrading subdivisions all over the region.

Thanks for the cell phone info SNED and Polar. We were checking around different carriers, probably going to stay AT&T who we've had pretty good luck with on forestry areas, believe it or not. Just for possible emergencies, we're not spring chickens any more!

Jilly, I can confirm Verizon works at 34.166788, -116.752112 and T Mobile does not. Just a spot up 1N38 on the south side of 38.

Thanks Doo-hick-way. I am sure I met the inspector at Vons 2 months ago. I mentioned I had not received a violation... must be good? He said no... haven’t been where you live yet and he expected to see a lot of problems. He drives a small white suv. I think a Chevy. I asked my neighbor who is usually at home and he has seen that vehicle around yet. Only asking because I trimmed a couple more trees today in hopes he had not shown up.

I have not physically seen them. But, when I went to Saw Works, there were odd tire tracks at each of my photos from notice to abate.
