Do You Use One of These?

In yesterday's post I mentioned that there are still cars in my neighborhood that are buried under snow. Lots and lots of snow! We got about 2 feet on Feb. 13th (biggest snow storm in these parts in 17 years). Since then, there's been another foot or so on top of that. Just imagine your car buried under all that plus whatever the plows pushed into it!

Over the past week I've noticed more and more things showing up in the streets.

Parking Chair <---Click to read somewhat of a technical definition on Wiki. And it's not just chairs. I've seen cones, garbage cans, and recycle bins People can be rude and trust me, I know rude. I went grocery shopping last night! But anyway, as scarce as parking spot are these days, especially around GG's school, it amazes me that people respect the chair. If you dig out a spot, stick a chair or some other object in it, you can claim that piece of the road as yours. It makes me so glad I have a driveway! At the moment it's a skinny driveway and we have to shimmy our way up to the house between the vehicles and the wall of snow, but at least we have one.
And while I'm educating you on my city, here's some more nifty little facts.

How to make a left turn~ If the light turns green, you're the first car and trying to turn left, you make your turn before the oncoming traffic starts to go.

Dumb Laws from the state~

It is illegal to sleep on top of a refrigerator outdoors
You may not catch a fish by any body part other than the mouth
Dynamite is not to be used to catch a fish
It is still illegal to bring a donkey or a mule onto a trolley car

Those are just a few dumb laws. If you want to read more, go here to check them out. Or look up your own state!

If you didn't already know, then I'm sure you've figured out where I'm from. But just so you know, don't bother trying to stalk find me. I have a guard "dog"!


Until next time...

Hahaha. The parking chair. I love it.

You and I had a discussion about the left turn before. Whenver that happens here in Michigan I honk my horn and call the driver a bad word. Maybe I shouldn't...because maybe their from where you're from. LOL

Well, I've always called that a Pittsburgh left so I'm guessing that's where you are. I actually (for no apparent reason) had a dream that I was living in Pittsburgh the other night.

I'm cracking up at the parking chair. I know it all too well.

Ah, the Pittsburgh left. It's crazy. People actually treat that like it is the law.

I lived in Morgantown, WV for a few years. (Hubs went to WVU and grew up there.) I am very familiar with the parking chair. Everyone uses it there. I think they do the left turn thing too.
