I bought this bed after seeing the posting earlier this year. It's not in use yet, because I don't have a Queen size mattress yet.

NorNor, I'm surprised at how many feng shui supporters there are on this site. It seems that anytime storage under the bed is the topic of the post, the first comment is "That's bad feng shui."

Show me a study that proves that people who live in an environment designed to maximize feng shui live significantly happier or healthier lives than people who don't follow it, and then maybe I'll believe it.

It's a "snowy city with no winter parking regulations" practice. I've lived in cities where alternate side parking was in effect all winter long. This, in theory, lets plows get in and have the streets cleared to the curbs within 2 days.

I've also lived in a city (Minneapolis) that only implements alternate side parking after a snow emergency has been declared. This doesn't work quite as well as the winter-long alternate side parking rule, as inevitably there will be cars that don't follow the rules. Although some cars are towed, it would be impossible to tow every single one, so they get plowed around.
