After the recent Hurricane that hit the lower Texas border we had a lot of rain. High water on the roads kept us from going the usual route. Afterwards, I took a bike ride to find some interesting places to sketch. Here is on of them a creek that was about to overflow. There was a lot of water moving down it. Later after riding my bike home I narrowly missed running over a water moccasin. I found this video of a Water Moccasin there also called Cottonmouths.
Heres a video of one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GG2kX3sZeWA
