First things first...clear all the snow off your vehicle...don't be this guy & drive. All that snow blows off eventually and may cause an accident!
Cary an Emergency car kit at all times of year.
Blanket, flashlight, energy bars, water, jumper cables, road flares, & extra warm clothing!
I went through Buffalo during one of these "Lake Effect Snows". From Canada to Amherst, NY it was about 3" deep...then it became depth of feet! Interstate unploughed, snow banks over the tops of Stop Signs! It took my son and I two hours to go 20 miles, until snow depth was back to a few inches! It was unbelievable! I had a Nissan Frontier 2WD pickup! Great little truck...LOL
