Jim,
You need to move to Phoenix. This part of the globe has already been warmed…no condensation issues.

Can you imagine a snake slithering up front from the baggage compartment? Bad enough I have to watch out for yellow jacket (read anaphylactic shock) in the cabin. I carry epipen, but don't know how that would work for snake bite. I'm giving myself the creeps.....

Years ago I had a hangar in rural AZ at Buckeye Airport (KBXK). One day while doing a preflight I noticed what looked like a dirty pile of rags off to the side. I got about 3 feet from it before I realized it was a rattler. Fortunately it was winter (what you easterners would call a brisk fall ). They are prettier lethargic at 50F. I left him alone and he left me alone!

My buddy is a retired USAF pilot who was an A-10 instructor at Davis Montha in Tucson. He told me preflight could be interesting because the rattlers liked to crawl into the shade under the wing and snooze by the tires in summer.

Yep, we got snakes!
