"Minneapolis, St. Paul declare snow emergency"
Original article appeared in the Star Tribune.
The snow storm on Saturday dumped up to eight inches of snow across central Minnesota. Now, in an effort to make the roads drivable again, a snow emergency has been called both in Minneapolis and St. Paul.
Sunday night at 9 p.m., is when all of the parking restrictions will begin for both Minneapolis and St. Paul. St. Paul plans on plowing all night long to make things easier in the morning. For the most part, no signs have been posted, especially for the parts of the city that will be plowed starting at 8 a.m. Monday morning.
People who would normally park on Minneapolis and St. Paul streets need to take note of when the plow will be coming through. For if they fail to move their cars, the cars will be ticketed and towed so that the plows can get through unobstructed. No one is allowed to re-park their car until the plows have plowed all the way to the curb.
The main part of the snow storm is over, with not too much activity for Sunday. Monday has a 30 percent chance of snow and Tuesday will bring on another low-pressure system with the chance of snow and sleet.
