Saw this post yesterday and thought, no problem, it is freezing here this morning and snakes won't be around. Plus, in 9 years of fulltiming i have never found anything in the engine compartment that didn't belong there. So i went out to unplug the block heater and check fluids and fire up to go, and what do i see but a piece of fur down by the block.....????. Leaned over to get a better view and saw that i had a small rabbit snuggled up to the block keeping warm. Took me a minute or two to get him out, he did not want to leave. ;D

Would have left "one way or the other" if you had that snake around!  ;)
