I was reading about that earlier this week and that there are cities with actual laws that say you can do that to hold a spot after you've taken the time to shovel it clear...Ahhh...the things you folks have to think about that we have NO CLUE about here in Houston :o)

Omg! That's crazy. So if you clean it off then it's yours? Weird rules.

LOL!! Un-real! Out here, they would just move the chair or crash it with the car or something!

So, in the City of Pittsburgh, it's actually not a law. The law says no one can reserve a parking space on a public street. However, it's a Pittsburgh tradition called parking chairs - if you shovel it, it's yours! They are all over the place. I have seen a parking stump, and some people have seen parking toilets. This apparently is totally a Pittsburgh phenomenon - the engineer has lived in many places and has never seen this except here!!!!!!

I have never seen this in upstate NY, and we certainly have snow.

"You've got a friend in Pennsylvania" but you may not have a cleared up parking spot!! :) I'm from the PA country, so we just waited until the plows got to our road to go anywhere. haaaaaa
