Lubbock Frozen, Baked & Still Dry
Okay, so I was triple layered last week, then in shorts and now experts are saying we could just all burn up at any second. Is there anything crazier than Lubbock Weather?
I know you still remember what the crunch of snow sounded like under your feet. Some of you still have an ice scrapper sitting on your dashboard. Then of course there are some of us who were getting lightheaded working on the first 84 degree day of the year last Saturday.
What’s surprising about all of this is, despite several nice dumping of snow, we’re still under water restrictions. That’s right, your greenery probably looks a little thirsty right now, but you are still under the crushing hand of the water police. If you’re like me and don’t remember the rules, here they are again. If you street address ends in a 0, 3, 4 or 9, you can water on Mondays and Thursdays. If your address ends with a 1, 5, 6 you have Tuesdays and Fridays to take care of business. Peeps with an address ending with a 2, 7, or 8 can water on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Believe it or not, the city even has a number that you can call to rat your neighbors out, but since that’s a total dick move, I’m not going to tell you what it is. You still may want to take it easy on the water, it looks like we’ll have more freezing temperatures before the months done.
