Turtle My son woke up Saturday morning in Crowley and found a snapping turtle on his front porch : ) He was taken to a creek so he could survive !! It's nice to see others stop and get them out of road too! Please everyone be kind to turtles who need human help to get back in waters! Sincerely Kristina from Mansfield

Peacocks in Flower Mound Peacocks flew in just before the rain came pouring down in Flower Mound. I guess they were searching for shelter at our neighbors house.

See what the rains brought up My husband was about to reach for this hose when he spotted the snake on it. We think it was a chicken snake. We snapped a picture, and walked away. Within 2 minutes, when we looked back, the snake was gone - back, we think - to the drainage ditch it came up from. Jaye SitaramLewisville, TX
