I moved from Holland to northern Wisconsin back in Sept. We get some serious snow here. Fortunately people here are used to it and panic doesn't set in. No run on the grocery store, no last minute craziness and most fortunately people tend to drive within the limits of the vehicles and roads. They understand 4 wheel drive doesn't mean you can go as fast as you want. Anyway, good luck with the impending storm.
