One of the worst parts of living in Minneapolis is that there never is enough parking. If you live in Uptown or Downtown, park on the street, and make it through an entire winter season without being towed, call it a success.
They do the plowing on the snow emergency routes to help emergency vehicles safely travel around Minneapolis. So, it does make sense. But, when you go out to find your car in the morning and have to taxi to the impound lot it might still make you mad.
Snow emergencies have been upgraded in the last few years. They now have an iPhone ap and also text alerts. If you have to park on the street make sure that you get these, you need both because the ap does not tell you when a snow emergency has been declared. It will save you a whole lot of money by avoiding the impound lot.
Also, if you own or rent a house make sure that your sidewalks are shoveled and ice-free, it is the law to keep them safe for walkers.

I hope you have a fun and safe winter season.
Because snow emergencies are just an excuse to walk to the bar and have a few drinks to warm you up.
If you are a foodie and like to cook, here is something that you may not know about. Every Saturday on TPT2 or Twin Cities Public Television they have a series of cooking shows such as America’s Test Kitchen, Simply Ming, and Essential Pepin to name just a few.
They really teach you how to cook like a real chef would. Happy TV watching day. Hopefully, the snow stops soon.
Because learning how to cook one dish well is something everyone should know, just in case the President comes to dinner.
