If you live in the city, street sweeping is just one of those things you have to deal with.
I live pretty close to the corner, and depending on which side of which street I choose (or am able to) park on, I could get a ticket on the first Tues, Wed or Thurs of the month. It's a real pain to remember, but it gets easier after you have to pay the city $50 for forgetting.
This being the first Wednesday of the month, I was all set to pay attention to the signs, when I realized that street sweeping only goes through November. Happy day!! It will pick back up in April, but at least we get a bit of a reprieve, which helps makes the cold weather a little more bearable.
