Midland, TX - Folks in Midland, Texas were a bit surprised by what the wind blew in. Take a look at this.

Tumbleweeds nearly covered this man's home.

You can see the weeds piled up along the house, on top and even crammed in the backyard.

Homeowner Josh Pitman was a bit lost for words when he first saw it.

A text message with the picture of the entire left side of our house here and it's just completely covered with tumbleweeds, most ridiculous thing I've ever seen."

Pitman says he recently tore down a fence in his front yard that probably would have protected his home from the tumbleweed attack.

He expects to spend the rest of the week cleaning up the mess.

Maybe they are protected by bushes ... ?

Maybe his house is at the end of a street, near an open field.
