While the rest of Colorado's Front Range is digging out from underneath feet of snow, residents in Pueblo West are digging out from underneath tumbleweeds. Up to 20 feet of them.
Residents of this town about 40 miles south of Colorado Springs report the invasion happened Wednesday.
Lisa Jackson says the tumbleweeds were packed so tightly that she couldn't see out her kitchen window on the second floor.
Neighbor Michelle Peulen drove home during the storm and says it was like driving through a weird video game. Other residents described the tumbleweeds as looking like giant spiders scampering across the plains.
Officials are helping residents dig out from under the tumbleweeds and are even allowing open burning with permission from the fire department.
