Tumbleweeds might be an iconic symbol in Western films to convey a sense of emptiness, but that couldn’t be further from the truth in this short clip.
The video shows a torrent of tumbleweeds being blasted by 50 mph (80 km/h) winds. The incredible footage was shot by Tom Forwood Jr. in Bozeman, Montana, on Wednesday, December 9.
"The [thousands] of Spiny Russian Thistles blew by and continued to pile up on [and] over a vertical surface facing west," Mr Forwood said, according to The Telegraph.
Some good Ol' Apocalypse Weather.
Insane. The temp dropped 19 F in as many minutes and there had to be thousands of Tumbleweeds. (For licensing or usage, contact email@example.com)
