Snow = tow

buzz.mn reports that over 1200 cars were towed to the impound lot in Minneapolis alone in the last two days (via Roadguy). Looking at the numbers, they seem to be quite similar to the totals for a snow emergency declared last year. You have to wonder how many of those people didn’t even know they were going to get towed.

More snow on the way this week = more snow emergencies. And this one’s going to be in the middle of the week.

    Yeah, this next one is going to SUCK. And since the weather guys were actually right on the last one, I’m much more inclined to pay attention. Even though there’s just as good a chance they could still be wrong.

    I love Roadguy.

    I’m irritated that as of this morning one of the snow emergency routes near me has clearly not been plowed. That’s a whole block’s worth of parking. At least nobody was parked on it, though, so I still have hope that *maybe* when I come home today it’ll be done.

    This is a case where having a garage rocks. Sure, it’s a one car garage requiring a 17 point turn to get into, but it won’t get towed.

    Worst evah: two cars towed while in Jamaica for a spring break trip a few years back.
