    Reviewer jacks912, “It is cold up here but as long as you come prepared you will be fine.

    – on post seems to be the cheapest to get your car winterized

    – 4 wheel drive is a plus but you can get by with front wheel drive and snow tires.

    -Big Ray’s Active 8 are great snow suits for kids

    – there isn’ a lot of shopping but the internet helps out on that front

    – The lack of sunshine in the winter is true but since it is a gradual change you don’t really notice it too much”
