ALBUQUERQUE, March 24 (UPI) -- A New Mexico woman found her back yard filled with tumbleweeds after strong winds swept across the state.

Micquie Clower of Albuquerque shared video to local news station KOB 4's Facebook page, showing a massive pile of tumbleweeds in her backyard.

"My pets can't get out and I don't know how we will ever get this cleaned up," she wrote.

The weeds can be seen piled up alongside and up to the top of a fence on the left side of Clower's property.

Clower pointed out that they have also obstructed a dog door near the back of her home, the weeds also appear to have knocked down several pieces of yard furniture.

On Wednesday Clower responded to a comment suggesting she seek the city's help, saying that they denied her request.

"The city just informed us that it is our problem. They won't help us," she wrote.

Our backyard. Remember how you were saying the tumbleweeds around Double Eagle Airport were a fire hazard? They're more...
