The snowfall resulted in various closures and postponements. At Texas Tech University in Lubbock, final exams on Saturday were postponed for a day.
Officials in Lubbock say local roadways became quickly passable after the storm thanks to temperatures climbing above freezing and efforts to pre-treat roads before the wintry weather hit.
