Yes. Do you know city / state? Would you want to tell us?
Maine, Alabama, North Dakota are all different.


But the ice street video you posted in the OP is uncommon to encounter.

I'm moving to Lincoln, NE for a year - after that I'm not sure. My family lives in Arkansas so there's some snow there too over winter & I may be there after my year in NE until I figure out my next move haha. Nebraska will have more snow than Arkansas I'm sure, right?

The midwest/plains do get snow and ice; not like you'd see in the Rockies or New England but be prepared. Luckily the landscape in NE is very flat so there won't be many hills to deal with if it does get icy. Always be prepared though no matter what. As others have said, get a dedicated pair of snows, they are much better than a general set of all seasons. As long as you're careful and keeps your wits about you, you should be fine in any weather :icon_wink:

Here's a vid of me having fun in the snow.

If it's hardpacked snow, all the all season tires I had worked fine. It's heavy slush and ice you gotta be super conservative in.

Have you seen the YouTube videos posted by Suba400? Very spirited driving in the mountains in Greece, in all seasons and all road conditions, lost of ice/snow driving.
