Minneapolis Snow Emergency Facebook Fan Page

mplssnowemergencyIf the forecasters are correct, we’re headed toward another Snowmageddon, with 4-8 inches of snow likely.

All the more reason to become a fan of the Minneapolis Snow Emergency Facebook Fan Page.

Add me as a friend, and I’ll let you know when a Snow Emergency is declared. When that happens, if you park in the street, you’ve got to follow the parking rules. If you don’t, I might have to have you towed away (actually, your car. I leave you where you’re at.)

I’ll share the info you need to avoid an expensive ticket and tow.

There’s a pretty great video here, too.

Recommended Minneapolis Twitter Users

Ed Kohler ranks Minneapolis Twitter users by “interestingness” using his patent-pending “F/U” algorhythm.

But focusing on your own rankings is mostly an effort in ego surfing. I suggest you use these lists to find people interesting to you to follow in Minneapolis, and more importantly, use Twitter to form REAL relationships.

I’ve said it 100 times, I know, but Twitter has helped me make more real-life friendships in the Twin Cities than Facebook, MySpace and LinkedIn combined.

Oh, and I’m @perfectporridge if we aren’t already friends. :)
