Here in the upper midwest in the winter we have to deal with "snow emergencies". If the city declares one, you either play their game or your car gets tagged & towed. So yesterday we had a couple inches of snow, this after a day of rain which melted almost everything that was already on the ground. This afternoon's snow depth map from the MN DNR shows a snow cover of 0-1" for Ramsey county, which includes St. Paul. Highs today and tomorrow are expected to reach 38°F on both days, which should melt all of it. True to form, St. Paul's corrupt city officials have declared a snow emergency. As of 9:30 a.m. this morning, St. Paul had tagged approximately 1900 vehicles ($53) and towed 795 of them ($219.50). Towees can expect to pay an additional $15/day for storage after the first day. This is just day 1. Snow emergencies run 2-3 days until all the streets are plowed. Sucks to live in St. Paul today.
