In my hometown, it was tradition for some of the graduationg seniors to try to climb the city water tower just before graduation every year. I really hope they are not still doing that, because it is quite dangerous! This one is also near a high school, probably tempting teens to try it out.
I am not a native of Lubbock, nor even of Texas. I was born and raised in Greenfield, Indiana, spent a couple of years living in Glasgow, Scotland, and then landed in Lubbock where I've been ever since. Have a look!
