Here in Tx. I'm being run over with tumbleweeds all up against my fence between me and the neighbor. Because I got a wire fence they're all on my side keeping them from blowing over to other yards. LOL

 

I found a picture online that shows how bad they can be.

better believe it ! law will get you in a second if you even utter the thought in your brain. LOL

 

We all live in fear that some cigarette smoking idiot will drop a cig butt and burn us out and pray you can get out in time and your insurance pays off.

 

 

I put this in the wrong forum, but, they will remove it from the TV area I can't delete nothing.

Re: Tumbleweeds taking over !

People here in NM get them piled up so badly at times, they can't get out of their houses and must be rescued.  Strangely, I've never heard of a fire being attributed to tumbleweeds.

 

@SharkE    What are you going to do about them?

Every year, workers with the flood control authority build one of these for Christmas in Albuquerque.

Re: Tumbleweeds taking over !

Hey, years and years ago, wasn't there a popular Tumbleweed song?.......

'More or less', 'Right or wrong', 'In general', and 'Just thinking out loud ' (as usual).

@ROMARY    Back in 1940s Sons of the Pioneers sang Tumbling Tumbleweeds.  One of my Dad's favorites.
