How much is it snowing there? People here overreact anytime it sticks, but there is a point at which the accumulation becomes an issue.
I've been fortunate in that I have a vehicle that's well equipped for snow, so I've been okay the handful of times I've had to deal with real snowfall around here. I found it to be very similar to driving in mud - take your time, go easy on the skinny pedal, etc. However, at some point, when you get enough on the ground, it becomes an issue simply by virtue of having a lot of stuff on the roads. When that happens, it's not so much about driving in a bit of snow; it's about not having the vehicle/equipment or municipal ability (no plows, salt, etc.) to manage it.
