Even where I live in Canada doesn't even have that bad of winters. We get 1 or 2 snowfalls that last a day or two, then it melts. And we get about 2 weeks of 0C temperatures before it warms up to like 5-10 on most mornings.
We've got about an inch and a half of snow, it's intense, panic everywhere! Chaos! Chaos! Chaos! I saw a car slip a bit and a bus going slowly! I'll keep you updated, trying to stay safe, wish me luck!
