We all love the rain in Texas but if the recent rain knocked out your electricity and you live in the middle of nowhere then you might have missed a few important things in the news.
Milk, Guns, and Thunderstorms
One of those things is schools trying to put a ban on the delicious and classic drink chocolate milk. That did seem to grind the gears of one of local contributors who had a lot of words to say about the subject and school safety. Another point of safety is staying indoors during a thunderstorm. One local Texas man was actually outside with his child when the two were struck by lightning and the results were very severe.
Battle of the Frozen Treats
Speaking of safety Lubbock actually has a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu place that just celebrated their one year anniversary, they also serve acai bowls. These acai bowls are a great frozen treat and healthier alternative to ice cream but who doesn't want to learn some self defense while also being able to grab something sweet after. In some cases healthier isn't always better as Dr Pepper (that's spelled right, it's not Dr. Pepper) has teamed up with Blue Bell Ice Cream to bring the most Texas dessert to the Lone Star State. Dr Pepper Float Ice Cream which has been flying off the shelves faster than kids chasing the ice cream man in a heatwave. I digress. The only thin better would be a Dr Pepper Strawberries and Cream Float Ice Cream, Blue Bell please make it happen!
