I grew up in Michigan but was living in California before I reached legal driving age, so I never learned to drive in snow. Years later I returned home to visit my Mother for Christmas. I ended up getting stuck and needing a tow truck on Christmas Day! You cannot imagine how expensive that was. I was also stuck for 16 straight hours during this infamous storm. Since then, I absolutely refuse to get in a car if I see even a single snowflake. I will also not get on a plane that needs to be de-iced. Probably not helpful for you, Ron, but therapeutic for me.
My son was there and said it took 2 hours for him to get from work to his apartment (literally 1.5 miles) and he didn't have to touch the interstate, just city streets in a flat part of town so not even a hill to worry about. He said later he wished he'd just walked since that would have taken 20 minutes
