Hundreds of Tumbleweeds Roll Across Ground Creating Eerie Spectacle – HOLLY NOTE: While Accuweather says this is 'eerie', it's common where we live. Tumbleweeds are a never-ending nuisance and they were particularly awful in 2014. Not only are tumbleweeds unsightly, very sharp stickers populate every branch and when clustered, present a fire hazard. By the time they're blowing across roads and yards, they are dry as a bone. Prickly branches stick into fences, trees and shrubs, and under cars. Worst, as they're blowing everywhere, tumbleweeds spread countless seeds. They lie dormant in any crevice all winter just waiting for the first spring rain and then the battle is on through fall. This video illustrated the problem just north of us in Colorado Springs. Notice they've blown into piles as tall as this man. Some years back, an enterprising woman collected tumbleweeds, spray-painted them gold and sold them on eBay. This site sells them for $25 – on sale! Most Coloradans would gladly give them away! We don't know a single neighbor or friend that doesn't spit tacks seeing the next round blow in.
