As for driving, you get used to it. We had a particularly bad day last week. We got about 6 inches or more of snow in a short period of time, right before the morning commute. It took some people hours to get to work (or to make up their mind to turn around). One of our employees got stuck in a line of traffic behind two buses that skidded across the exit road and blocked the one-way route. Then, some people ran out of gas, blocking the others in line. It was looney bins.
Real Northern Exposure kinda place, sounds like.
