This Australian Town Has Been Invaded by Tumbleweeds

Tumbleweed Mess

Tumbleweeds are piling up roof high outside homes in Wangaratta. #7News

Since everything we know about tumbleweeds is from movies, we're pretty sure when you see a tumbleweed, it means that you have entered an abandoned cowboy town. And by that logic, the town of Wangaratta, Australia must be the most abandoned town of all time, because the tumbleweeds there are piled up almost as high as the houses. (Or, as the frustrated non-cowboy residents speculate, it may be located near a paddock that a farmer has failed to maintain.) (But we like our version better.)
