"It's very slick, it felt like there is a layer of ice under the car, under the snow ," said Bill Brown. "It was rough out there."
They may be used to Lubbock weather, but still say they were excited to see snow for the holiday.
"It's picturesque, it's pretty to look at, but it's cold out here," said Bill.
His sister Debbie was a little more surprised to see the snow after recent weather. "Considering there was a dust storm the day I flew in, a little bit, but then again Lubbock is known for it's unpredictable weather," said Debbie.
They took a break from celebrating with family to take a walk in the snow Tuesday afternoon. "then we're going to get home as soon as we can, it's too cold," said Debbie.
"We're staying in tonight I think," said Bill.
Bill also said the roads he drove on Tuesday were some of the worst roads he's ever dealt with when it comes to snow. "I've lived in Wisconsin, and they were worse than any Wisconsin driving," said Bill.
Just before 11 a.m. Tuesday, a car lost control on Loop 289 headed Eastbound near University and Avenue P. The car hit the center median and a light pole fell onto the car. There were no injuries in that accident.
Police and EMS were busy Tuesday responding to accidents across the city and county.
The Texas Department of Public Safety said they had 6 accidents in Lubbock County between midnight and noon Tuesday.
During that same time frame, LPD said they had a total of 41 car accidents reported.
"You know, Lubbock doesn't plow, we wait for the plow in the sky to appear," said Bill.
Drivers are cautioned to be aware of any wet spots tonight, or any areas that may be in the shade, like bridges or overpasses. Those areas have the possibility of re-freezing Tuesday night as temperatures continue to drop.
