For some reason all of the book adverts at the bottom of the page are for Climate Change books ?

I'm amazed at the density of the tumbleweeds, I wonder if anything specific caused such a large number?

Yes.  A high wind and a long fetch distance.  I have seen them bury a house.

Windbreaks make great tumbleweed catchers.

No.  This doesn't have anything to do with global warming.

Huh, they usually just light these on fire if the wind isn't too bad.
