Albuquerque, New Mexico buried in tumbleweed

It may not snow much in the high desert of the southwestern United States, but winter equipment is coming in handy for troublesome tumbleweed. In Albuquerque, New Mexico, residents are digging out of massive piles of the grass, where in some places has reached rooftops.
Powerful winds of over 90 km/h have left trees and power lines damaged. Albuquerque has classified some areas as "code red" as residents can't get out their doors. A bigger concern is fire.
