Tumbleweed Heaven

This is what greeted us when we got home today. Well, it's part of what greeted us. There are countless little bundles all over the place. I remember running into a small weed as I rushed to the car this morning. Obviously, a lot of its friends joined later today! Apparently the wind conditions were just perfect for forming a congregation of tumbleweeds near my door.
I do console myself with the fact that if we had had snow instead of tumbleweeds, we might be facing another week of isolation as we did a couple of Januaries ago. Compared to snowdrifts equally as high, I think piles of tumbleweeds three+ feet high might not be so bad as they at first seemed.
Do you suppose there is anything I can afford that might entice my daughter to drag them into the empty field on the other side of the street tomorrow? Nah, probably not!
