Boy Scouts Help Cleanup Tumbleweeds

A group of Boy Scouts spent Saturday cleaning up a neighborhood buried in tumbleweeds.

Windy weather blew massive amounts of tumbleweeds into the neighborhood, blocking streets and burying vehicles on the east side of Colorado Springs.

The scouts showed up with rakes and pickup trucks. A local church also helped. Banning Lewis Ranch donated two large dumpsters to the effort.

A neighbor told KKTV 11 News she is grateful for the help.

"It's nice to know that people are willing to help clean up and lend a hand because I don't know how we would do it without them," Christine Strickland said.

The group says it plans to take the tumbleweeds to the Fountain landfill.
