You can have the wind, all you want whenever. Since we've had less than 15 inches of rain in the past 3.5 years when the wind blows so does the sand and the freaking tumbleweeds. Check this out, it's not too far from us.http://acidcow.com/video/42280-unbelievable_tumbleweeds_attack_in_midland.html
The biggest tumbleweed I ever saw was in Midland in the early 70's. It filled an entire alleyway as it rolled- it was too heavy to bounce. I ran from it...However, I've never seen anything like in that video. Incredible.On a side note, it's pretty foolish to drive into tumbleweeds. Hitting just one can end up with your vehicle burnt down to the axles. Especially trucks since the mass of tinder-dry bush can wedge up underneath the manifold, catylitic converter or the exhaust and burst into flame quite easily.
Puna! Is that a huge glaring icicle in that photo? Props for staging.
