Hi all, I am a recent graduate in construction from Texas A&M, and will be moving to Lubbock to work on a project that my company has there. I am wondering what there is to do in Lubbock and also (semi joking sort of not) will i have a hard time living there being an Aggie? I have no problems with TTU and love Kingsbury so hopefully that will gain me some good graces.

People will give you a hard time, but only out of sheer friendliness. Lubbock itself is a much better town than College Station in my opinion since there's actually a real city there with museums, music venues, and civic pride rather than feeling like a far-flung suburb of Houston.

I see, I feel like when we see Raiders in College Station we give them a hard time occasionally but only out of friendliness also. I also see that the Rockies are fairly close by. Are day trips possible? Also, how much snow do you typically get each year?

Not day trips, but weekend trips most certainly. Much of Lubbock's upper crust have vacation homes in Ruidoso (4 hours). Santa Fe (5 hours) and the Taos/Enchanted Circle (6 hours) are popular as well.

Winter weather generally happens 5-10 times a year, usually occurring in the form of dustings of snow, occasionally 3-6 inches, but almost never more than that.
