Snow and parking spaces
It’s funny the difference between The City and The Suburbs when it comes to snow season.
This time last year, I lived in Jamaica Plain, and had no off street parking. The roads were tight, and when the plows went through your car vanished in a pile of sludgy grey snow.
Digging the car out and marking your spot with a chair is pretty common, and as has been noted before, annoying as hell when a limited number of spaces are available and people are marking them when there is no need to do so.
This year is different. I now live in Lynn, about 30 miles north of the city. The roads a wider, there is more access to off street parking, and I haven’t seen a single chair, filing cabinet, traffic cone or other object stealing spaces on the road side.
So, is it a greed thing? “My parking spot, my precious”
Who knows. I only know I’m glad to get well away from it!
