Ski ‘n’ read

Hats off, or perhaps pulled down over the ears, to the dedicated library user spotted at 8:20 a.m. at Tacoma Public Library’s King Branch at South 19th and Pine streets.

Tacoma’s libraries are closed today, thanks to the snow, but this dedicated reader was determined to get her books returned on time.

How dedicated? She made the trip on her cross-country skis.

We were doing pretty well at keeping our car slow and steady, and decided against veering uphill into the parking lot to see what she was reading, and whether those skis were no-wax or vintage wood, and if they were wood, what kind of wax was she using.

Do you have tales of alternate transportation to work and on errands?

Are the folks who were bicycling around town late last week still two-wheeling it?

Please share the adventure with other hard-packed blogsters.
