NEWTON

Christmas music in stores the day after Halloween. "Rudolph" on TV a week before Thanksgiving. Well, at least there's something that still comes in December.

Yes, Newton, the overnight parking ban and the special parking rules for snowstorms are now in effect.

That means at night, parking is not allowed for longer than one hour between 2 a.m. and 6 a.m. If the city declares a snow emergency, parking is prohibited on all city streets and municipal parking lots.

And from the Duh! Department: the city is also reminding residents that, when plowing a driveway, they should pile snow toward the right side of their property -- not plow it onto the street or across the street or onto a neighbor’s sidewalk.
