If you’re a San Diegan moving to the Lone Star State’s capital, pack your appetite and dancing shoes.
You might want to bring a shovel, too.
That’s the advice of Maria McPhail, a San Diego State graduate. She and her husband, Doug, came here five years ago, and bought a house twice the size of the one they had left behind in California. But when a rattlesnake slithered onto their new home’s windowsill, Doug struggled to kill it with the only large tool the family had — a pickax.
“We were so naïve,” Maria said. “We’ve learned that you take a shovel and strike down on the head and pop it off.”
