hollow tree snowed-in day

I am thoroughly and happily snowed in. I still have electricity, so I am watching every episode of Would I Lie To You in which Miranda Hart appears. Miranda Hart is an excellent liar, you guys.

I was considering going to the library to return Raising Stony Mayhall, which is due today. It is 2.2 miles there and back, perfect length for a dogwalk when you're not wading through snow the whole way. I have some tall snow boots that used to be my daughter's, that are all right for taking out the trash, but I don't think I want to walk two miles in them.

I used to love going to the library with my dog. I'd clip him to an unoccupied bench, or a bike rack if all the benches were full, and give him a Greenie. I worried a little about someone bothering him while I was inside, because he is so very pretty and shy, but it is all self-serve now and doesn't take more than a minute to drop off returns, pick up holds, and check them out on one of the many machines. Then one day a security guard told me that that was not allowed. He said that Fort Collins police consider an unattended dog to be a loose dog, even if it is leashed to something. I don't think a police officer or Animal Control is likely to show up in the minute that I am inside, but the prospect of being hassled by security is unpleasant enough that I don't do that very often anymore.
