Blizzard Update: Milford parking ban

Just so all you Milfordites know, alternate side of the street parking goes into effect tonight at 6 p.m. in preparation for this potentially enormous snowstorm.

The city wants you to park on the ODD side of the street beginning tonight at 6 p.m. At 8 a.m. Friday, you need to move your cars to the EVEN side of the street. Then, it's back to the ODD side of the street at 8 a.m. Saturday (that is, if your car isn't buried in a 10-foot snow drift).

So, starting at 6 p.m. tonight, it'll be ODD, EVEN, then ODD switching at 8 a.m. each day until the parking ban lifts at 8 a.m. Sunday.

But, avoid parking on the street if possible. The city will be salting, sanding, and plowing as much as it can, but Mayor Ben Blake told me to tell you that you should stay off the roads and stay safe. If your power goes out or you get stranded on I-95, there's a shelter at the Beth-El Center, 900 New Haven Avenue.

There's a chance for coastal flooding along the shore, so coastal Milfordites should take warning.

More on the New Haven Register web site and in tomorrow's paper on this developing blizzard (if I can call it that).
