I tried to visit the library today a little after 3PM to return a DVD that was due. The parking lot was filled to bursting with horses, trailers and participants from the Veteran's Day parade. After finally finding a parking spot, I made it into the library where an announcement was being made that a lecture scheduled for today was being delayed because patrons couldn't get to the library on time.
This gave me a taste of what is going to happen when the city's ice skating rink comes to town in November and one entire side of our parking lot will be frozen over. And where will those who come to skate park? Probably on the other side of our parking lot. The signs do no good as evidenced during the County Fair when fair goers ignore the signs and park in the library lot.
I don't know if the participants today were given permission to park there but it was a mess.
