Fish out of water, in a manner of speaking

I’m an urban planner by profession, so land use patterns interest me. This city block has a cotton gin and a church on it, which is…well, I’m not sure what it is. Uncommon, at least.

And, then, on the vacant part of the block are all these boats. Is someone over at the church anticipating Biblical-level floods? Are we thinking rising sea levels will impact us here, at our High Plains elevation of 3,500 feet? Is it an art installation? Is it some kind of housing program for homeless boaters? What the hell is happening here?

  2. To me it’s obvious: You can’t have Levelland Boatyard without a yard in Levelland with boats in it. And why not? It is, after all, Levelland. You can’t have a boatyard in Lumpyland. Too lumpy. Problem solved.


  3. Some would say global warming.
