Parking in Boston

I'm currently apartment-hunting in Boston, and have a question about how street-parking works (specifically, in the winter).

Even though I plan to use the T a lot, I do have a car and need to have a place to put it. A lot of places only have street parking (sometimes with resident permit). How does this work in the winter when there is a heavy snowstorm? My family tells me that every winter they see news clips of people having their cars towed b/c you can't park on the street during a snow emergency. While it makes sense to me that the plows need room, I can't see how an entire city just stops parking on the street.
so, is renting a place with street parking a total pain in the ass, or not that big a deal?
