The snow is predicted to start here in Hudson at 9 o'clock on Friday morning and continue for the next 24 hours. On Saturday morning, the snow will stop, and the wind will pick up. By Sunday, the sunshine will return.
In advance of the snow, the mayor has declared a snow emergency, which we all know has to do with parking--getting the cars out of way to allow the streets to be plowed. So here are the parking rules for the next three days:
From 8 a.m. Friday to 8 a.m. Saturday:
All cars must be parked on the ODD side of the street--for 24 hours
From 8 a.m. Saturday to 8 a.m. Sunday:
All cars must be parked on the EVEN side of the street--for 24 hours
From 8 a.m., Sunday, to 8 p.m. Sunday:
All cars must be parked on the ODD side of the street--for 12 hours
PLEASE NOTE: In an effort to avoid negativity, Gossips is telling you where you SHOULD park not where you shouldn't.
Remember that during a snow emergency cars have to stay parked on the same side of the street for 24 hours. If you pull your car out of a snowbank at any time between 8 a.m. one day and 8 a.m. the next, you will have to put it back in the snowbank when you get back home or risk being towed. So, this weekend seems like a good time to tug on your snow boots and find out just how walkable our little city is.
At midnight on Sunday, February 10, snow removal begins, and that's a whole other story. Consult this chart to learn where your car needs to be parked from Sunday to Monday.
