I was wrong. They do exists and they roll through Southwest Kansas/Oklahoma Panhandle. Tumbleweeds even get stuck underneath your car. While driving I do see them tumble across the road. I thought it was the weirdest thing.
In November someone in my office said the tumbleweeds were beginning to come out. (Apparently, there is a season for tumbleweeds. I guess like how there is a season for tulips?) On the way to Alva, Oklahoma for the Cowboy's family Thanksgiving. I told the Cowboy how I had never seen a tumbleweed and wanted to see one.
The Cowboy laughed and laughed. How could someone never have seen a tumbleweed and be so interested? Then I said maybe it could be a story? The facts behind tumbleweeds? Again, laughter filled the car.
I am sure I am not the only one. People from the East Coast, West Coast and South have never seen tumbleweeds. Am I right?
