    calling up

    In the statement below:

    Still, no close call seems closer than when a giant snake comes calling up the weatherman`s shorts.

    What does "Calling up" means in this context ?


    Thanks in advance!

    It' "...comes calling, up the..." "Comes calling" means "comes to visit".
