    Where am I supposed to park?!!! I live in St. Paul near Summit avenue and they’ve not plowed the day plow residential streets yet. So my car is up on Summit, which is plowed as it’s a snow emergency route, but I’m supposed to move it by 9 p.m. for the second snow emergency, but I’ve got no where to park. I’ve spoken to others and they said the same thing–the East Side, Highland Park, Como, West of Snelling–none of the residential streets are plowed yet. How can we have a second snow emergency if the city isn’t anywhere near finished with the first one. You’ve got to give us options St. Paul!

    Per St Paul snow emergency website – as of Sun 12/12 10am – plowing on the day routes will not begin until there has been one pass on all Night Plow Rts & Night Plow Rts/This Side of street.
    I live in West Como area of St Paul & at 4:30pm Sunb 12/12, we have yet to see a snowplow on the Night Plow/This Side of Street Rte or the E/W streets or non-posted side of street of the Night Plow Rte.
    All my neighbors know & follow the parking restrictions – we had to shovel & snow blow the streets to move our cars off the E/W streets & into the alley’s this AM.
    I called the city works complaint line at 2:30pm & was told to callback at 5:30. I faxed my address & location & still no plows have appeared.

    The night plow route next to my house was plowed around 8 this morning. Everyone in the neighborhood got all the cars moved to the night plow route so now we have to move it back. With the second snow emergency, does this mean that the night plow route going to get re-plow again tonight?

  • Karen

    con’t — only 4 wheel drive vehicles are able to get thru our streets. In the morning I have to go to work (downtown St Paul). I’m sure all the streets are plowed in downtown too bad the city residents wont be able to make it there.

    Thank you for all your efforts to get our streets plowed. We were out in the storm last night and it took from 3:00 to 9:30 to get one car in a safe place. I can’t imagine multiplying that by 10 or 100 times. We are thinking of you and praying that you will be safe as you do this very challenging job. We will be very happy to see your work when we wake up tomorrow morning!!

    I’m sick with a 103 temp and body aches from trying to move myself and neighbors ALL weekend long. I don’t know what to do and am very frustrated to the piont of tears. I can’t afford a tow. You have left you TAX paying citizens with no options. I know you are all working as hard as you can, so our we and we will be penalized.
