WATCH: Casper, Wyoming Tumbleweed Is TikTok Famous Thanks To The Wind
It was a typical Sunday morning for my family and me.
We woke up and went to church, and while it was a bit blustery, it wasn't anything unusual for this time of year.
There we were, stopped at a stoplight when suddenly a Tumbleweed rolled through the street.
I quickly told my son to film it. I thought it was such a funny (yet typical) Wyoming sight..one lone giant Tumbleweed rolling down an empty street.
Without much thought I posted it to my TikTok, hoping that it made others smile too.
Here were are a few days later, and the post has almost 1,000 likes and has been viewed over 10,000 times.
There are dozens of comments, and what I love the most is how many of them are from other Wyomingites that are thrilled to see a look at the "real" Wyoming we all love.
Yes, we all commiserated a bit over the unrelenting Wyoming wind, but overall the comments were full of laughter and clever comments about "Why the Tumbleweed crossed the road".

As Drew and I were talking about the fact that in general, the Wyoming wind doesn't bother us we decided to ask our listeners what they thought about the wind.
