Thank you. They sure do. Actually, there is talk it may go to Sonora and not Junction, but there's no definite plan yet.

You can still dream, though.

Yeah either would work. Junction would be better for me though. I doubt they'll take that into account though. Probably a long way off if it happens.

The issue is going to be traffic or lack thereof until West Texas towns get a bigger influx of people with something other than oil. Plus, there is a proposal to start I-27 at just north of Laredo and follow it up U.S. 277 to Eagle Pass, Del Rio, Sonora and San Angelo before following U.S. 87. It's part of the Ports-To-Plains Corridor Plan, and Lubbock would be right in the middle of it.

Well, San Angelo needs an interstate going through it. Has always hurt the town as far as growth. I think it may be the second largest city in the country behind maybe Fresno without an interstate.

The hiways south from Lubbock like 84 are just a good as most interstates are. Lubbock has a huge influx of people not from oil...... It is an excelent retirement comuniity.

[quote=pioneer8;48135]Hi all you helpful Texans. I'm wondering about Lubbock. I've heard a little on these forums, a job could potentilly take us there, and since we have the final choice, we are trying to get a bit of info about it. We will be driving out tomorrow, so the quicker the better I've done some investigating and two things look alarming. The tornado risk is way high in this statistics book that I have.........last Tornado that hit Lubbock was over 30 years ago!

You're probably right. But it may be long ways off before something like that comes to fruition, if at all.

I am considering a move to Lubbock in order to be closer to my son/grandson in Hobbs, NM. I will be moving from Florida. Is this a sane move??!!! I need good health care for my elderly mother and special schooling for my 15y/o with ADHD and Aspergers. Also need some water where we can actually swim!!! I'm so very ready for change but am a bit apprehensive as to such a major change!!!! Any advice/input would be so greatly appreciated!!! Thank you so much!!!

Medical care is good. The Lubbock school district almost surely offers satisfactory special ed to address problems of Asperger's and ADHD, assuming these conditions rise to the level of meeting the formal criteria for special ed assistance. As to water to swim in? Swimming pools perhaps? You really need to visit Lubbock before making any decision. It will be a major change environmentally, though not necessarily socially,depending on where in FL you are living.
