Snake, could this possibly be your funnel web spider?

They're called pedipalps and they're used by spiders in lieu of antennae. Spiders will sometimes actually touch their prey before attacking.

How ya been Bubba? All snow melted away from Grandmom's house? Darn I hate snow and my son's town is predicting they'll be getting about a foot this week, that's in N. Calif.
Weather service predicted snow for us in N.W. Arkansas this weekend but changed it which is good, I'm going to a gun show Saturday.~
