Do You Agree With These Pros and Cons of Living in Lubbock?
I came across a video posted to TikTok by user @michaelnorsworthyre last February that points out the pros and cons of living in Lubbock, Texas, and I think it's actually pretty accurate. Lubbock isn't a perfect place to live, but there are definitely some upsides that make it worth it.

So, what do you think? My only complaint is that I don't exactly think we have the greatest weather. Sure, it's usually sunny, but the summertime here is insanely hot. The wind mixed with the heat is like someone holding a blow dryer to your face, sometimes. I'm definitely not a fan.
He also only briefly mentions dust storms (haboobs) that we have around here and says they don't happen as often as people think. I would have to disagree, especially after the last couple of weeks. They have been pretty terrible.
There are a few comments below the video from other TikTok users that seem to feel the same way about the weather as I do:
"Lubbock has the worst weather. Wind, wind, and more wind!"
"Literally in a Lubbock dust storm rn as I type this comment."
"It rains mud in Lubbock once or twice a year."
He is definitely right about the cost of living and the housing market. It's pretty great and it's a huge upside to living in the area. You can save your cash to take trips to more exciting places instead of living in them full-time, and I'm okay with that.
So, what do you think? What pros and cons did he miss? Let me know in a comment below this video on our Facebook page.
