Keeping the cars on the street ends up being less of a hassle then coordinating two cars being parked in the garage, and getting back with children. Eventually we dig ourselves out, only after an hour or two of my husband chit chatting with the neighbors outside. Shoveling out becomes community bonding at that point.I added a comment that it is hard to know when it is declard.
But, we can get notifications from the City sent to our home or office EMails (or both, perhaps). You can sign up for a notification from the city here.
