California has some of the most scenic locations in the world.
It also has some of the most beautiful mountains, towering redwoods, vast swaths of beach, and gorgeous deserts.
And in some places, far too many tumbleweeds.

According to ABC News, the high-desert community of Victorville in SoCal has a bit of a tumbleweed problem.
The high winds from recent storms have caused hundreds of thousands of the bushes to “invade” people’s homes, pile up in their driveways, flood their backyards.
It’s gotten so bad, some residents have called on authorities for help.
And while rescue crews have hauled thousands of the weeds away, it’s just not nearly fast enough.
ABC News quotes one homeowner as saying:
“Normally, you get a few flying down the street or whatnot, but never this many that will stack up even this much, and this is mild compared to what it was actually in the back yard and in the front of the house. So no, it’s never been this bad.”
No kidding! That’s terrifying!
Someone send help!
Or a flamethrower. I’m sure that’ll work.
What could go wrong?
