Following the major blizzard that pounded the state overnight, the city of Minneapolis has declared a double-whammy for people who park their cars on the street:
A Snow Emergency, plus winter parking restrictions that'll last through April 1.
The Snow Emergency is standard, meaning it'll go into effect at 9 p.m. Sunday (tonight) and last three days, but the latter declaration means no one will be allowed to park on the EVEN side of many of the city's streets — for over a month.
The city's website breaks down the rules right here, but the quick version is that, during winter parking restrictions, the even-numbered side of non-Snow-Emergency-routes will be off limits so that snow plows can do their work.
You'll still be able to park on Snow Emergency routes and the odd-numbered side of city streets.
The restrictions will start the day after the current Snow Emergency ends — Wednesday, Feb. 27, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Of course, leaving your car in one of the affected areas will result in a tow, a ticket, or both.
The city says there's a chance it could lift the parking ban before April if conditions allow, but we're pretty sure Winter 2019 has no intention of being so merciful.
