This piece, from Texas Tech University’s acclaimed public art program is called “Texas Rising,” created by artists Blessing Hancock and Joe O’Connell. The stars are lit from the inside, which looks lovely at night. But they also look nice in the daytime when the snow’s coming down.
Another day, another polar vortex image. I have to say, even though I don’t like cold weather at all, that this snow was very pretty as it feel with a nice greenhouse in the background.
There were, of course, horrible problems across most of the state as a result of the weather, and people were without power, had frozen water pipes, had to boil drinking water*, and had flooding in their homes when the water thawed. People died, too, which is an unimaginable tragedy. Lubbock escaped almost all of that, which makes me feel a little weird about continuing to post my “Look at the pretty snow!” images.
