There's nothing like a good laugh at someone else's misfortune. That's why today I decided to rummage through YouTube to find the best ice fails for you to watch when your boss isn't looking. Lubbock will certainly be slippery and wintery on Wednesday, so here are a whole lot of examples of what not to do. Enjoy!

Don't forget to salt your porches and try to stay off of the roads if at all possible. People in Lubbock are terrible drivers year-round and adding ice to the equation makes things much much worse.

If you have time, you may even want to help out and check on your elderly neighbors to make sure they have safe walkways to get to the car, etc. Shoveling snow burns a lot of calories. If you're trying to start the new year off by shedding a few pounds, consider shoveling the whole block if things get bad. It's hard work, but you will feel good about it later and it will do a number on that beer belly you got while you were stuck at home during the pandemic.

Stay warm, Lubbock...and keep your camera out just in case one of your dumb friends takes a spill on the ice. We'd love to see some Lubbock ice fails in action!
