  4. Oh they burn, they are super-dry. As is everything around them. Don’t want to risk that.

  6. When tumbleweeds break loose from their roots and start tumbling they are already dry and highly flammable. They burn hot and fast so they are a real fire danger.

  13. Victorville is a pit stop and an eyesore on the way to Vegas. The town should rejoice it’s not getting invaded by Godzilla. It’s a laughingly perfect setting for a 1950’s style Sci-Fi movie.
