MIDLAND, Texas (AP) — A brutal storm system that brought 19 inches of snow to some areas of West Texas has delivered something entirely different to one homeowner.

Winds in excess of 60 mph that accompanied Monday’s blizzard pushed hundreds of tumbleweeds against a Midland home.

KWES-TV of Odessa and Midland reports one side of Josh Pitman’s home is obscured by tumbleweeds stacked one atop the other, blocking some doorways.

Pitman says he recently tore down a fence that would have protected his home from the rambling weeds.

He says it’s the “most ridiculous thing” he’s ever seen.

He expects to spend the rest of the week clearing away the tumbleweeds.
