Trapped in Tumbleweeds
Roads close down because of snowstorms, floods, or even melted chocolate. But roads in Washington state were closed for 10 hours on New Year’s Eve, because of tumbleweeds! A windstorm had piled them 20 to 30 feet high, trapping 10 cars inside. Snowplows were able to break through the tumbleweed wall, freeing everyone before the year ended.
