So, this house doesn't have water, and it doesn't have electricity for up to eight hours* after as little as a half-hour thunderstorm, but it does have snakes. Big fucking snakes that loiter on the grass in the dark. It's seriously not cool. They'll fuck your shit up if you give them half a chance.
I had thought that I had seen the worst of the various fauna overrunning the place, but I was wicked wrong. Now we need to sell this house and get ourselves back to civilization.
Of course, to do that, we'll have to start in on a lot of home-improvement projects. That should be fun.
