In Case You’re Wondering, Lubbock Is Still Abnormally Dry
It seems like we've had more rain than ever and that it just won't stop. Guess what? It's still not enough.
According to a graphic sent out by Lubbock's Emergency Manager Coordinator, Lubbock is still, at the very least "abnormally dry".
It's weird to hear this news when roofs are leaking and giant potholes are opening up across the city, but we had/have a lot of ground to make up.
It's been what the farmers are calling an "upside down year" in that we got sunshine when we needed rain and vice versus. We currently have cotton in the fields getting degraded with each rainstorm.
In case you're a little rough on your geography, start on the upper left-hand corner of Texas, count ten squares down and in the third square to the right, that's Lubbock with a yellow spot over it.
