I believe what you had encountered was a Conduit Snake. Very rare in the outdoors, but mainly seen in and around garages, and construction sites. There's never been a report of anyone ever getting bitten by one, but many people have been hospitalized by them from beatings they can give if provoked.
Too bad you didn't get that picture. Some have a blue streak on the sides, with some resembling letters and numbers.

We had a similar snake in Arkansas, we called them "Emt" snakes.

The conduit snake is very docile when compared to an unconduit snake. The unconduit snake is lighter colored but still has patterns that look like letters and numbers. When provoked the unconduit snake can kill an adult in a split second. Usually they are easily provoked by weed eaters and shovels.
