Do Not Pick Up The Snakes

(alternative post title: "Snakes on a Boat")

Southern California is on alert this Wednesday for strong winds and seriously high swells of 15 feet or more. Obviously, this is a bad time to boat.

Due to the extreme weather conditions, officials also issued a warning about rattlesnakes.

LA County's Department of Beaches and Harbors warns that snakes can be carried by runoff water to the ocean and beaches, and can resemble sticks when they are on the sand or mixed in with debris.

Those snakes are gonna be pissed after that unexpected ride - watch out!
