The winds definitely packed a punch on Monday [Feb 25, 2013]. Debris and damage could be seen everywhere. That’s not unusual, but in Midland, [Texas], something happened that had drivers slamming on the breaks and stopping to take pictures.
Wicked winds caused chaos throughout the Basin. …But the most fascinating event that spread like wildfire was a picture of tumbleweeds piling up on a Midland home.
“My wife sends me a text message with the picture of the entire left side of our house here and it’s just completely covered with tumbleweeds, most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen,” homeowner, Josh Pitman, said.
The winds blew all the tumble weeds, some even on the roof and wrapped around Pitman’s house.
“I didn’t even know this many tumbleweeds existed,” Pitman said.
