Awesome! Dodging 30 ft high tumbleweeds would be an other-worldly experience! And dealing with 10 or 20 of them bouncing around in your line of vision would be like something out of a video game. This is something none of us even have a mental frame of reference to process. It would be totally mind-blowing and beyond our realm of experience. Maybe like crashing the bear-cage of an F1 tornado or something.Interesting high wind issue in Washington State - Tumbleweeds buried cars and trucks on a highway and the state DOT had to use snow plows to remove them...

Yeah, I'd expect this to be a Saturday event around here. The GFS has been tail following the EURO in the extended.GFS is always too fast and has a SE bias. Majority of guidance is hitting Saturday as the day. Euro is volatile from Saturday through the end of the run and beyond.
