Tumblegeddon: A town in southern Utah was taken over by Tumbleweeds

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

Residents used hoes and shovels to break down the weed piles before city workers arrived with garbage trucks. Imagine this is one of those 1950s-style horror movies - the town suddenly invaded, although the invaders were less charismatic than monsters or aliens.
