Mother Nature had quite a surprise for many residents of Clovis, New Mexico when they woke-up on Monday morning.
Tumbleweed, also known as Russian thistle, had invaded the small community.
A strong wind from the north began late on Sunday night causing a pile-up of the plants. Many residents say they have never seen anything like this before.
The City hopes to have the tumbleweed cleared by the end of the week. Until then residents will be digging out and driving cautiously.
