It's snowing! Where do I park?
Even if you've lived in the Twin Cities a long time, those darn snow emergency rules can be confusing. Here's a primer:
On the first day of a snow emergency In Minneapolis--like TODAY--you can't park on a street with red and white snow emergency signs--at least if there's still snow there. That's because those streets are prioritized for plowing. But once the street has been cleared to the curb, it's park-able territory.
On the second day--i.e. TOMORROW--new rules start up. You can park on any street with Snow Emergency Route signs. You can park on the odd address side of non-snow emergency route streets, but not on the even.
The rules are similar for St. Paul, which is not going into snow emergency until 9 p.m.
