Snow Emergency whiners irritate me to know end. It is not complicated and the city literally calls you at home to tell you what to do, plus they have a website so you can clearly see in real time. It's not hard folks. If you get towed it's your own damn fault and I thank you for your donation to the city coffers.

This past Emergency was poorly enforced; cars un-ticketed and un-towed on W 50th Street & Minnehaha Parkway ; 5 cars parked on W 49th Street: saw police ticket 2 and ignore other 3. Does someone know somebody??

This article has confusing contradicting instructions: It says "How can you tell if the side is even? Walk up to a house and look at the address. If the house number ends with a 1, 3, 5, 7 or 9, then go back to your car, which unfortunately was towed while you were looking at the house." The number mentioned above end in ODD numbers, so you SHOULD park on that side of the street on day 2. Also it says "Day 3 is easy: Time-wise, it lasts from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., just like Day 2, but it is the opposite of the day before. If you are heading north, park on the right side. If you are heading south, park on the left side." This would only be true in South Minneapolis. On the North side the Even side is East/South sides of streets, Odd is West/North. Also, at the end
