Oooh! I grew up in ND for 25 years and moved to CA because winter loving sucks.

- Don't put chains on your tires. They are illegal in most places.
- You don't need 'winter tires', but do respect ice. I've been in 3 accidents in my life. All of them under 10 MPH because I just slid into someone. Don't learn this the hard way like my dumb rear end and actually assume that if it looks icy that you can't break without skidding.
- I don't think PA gets *that* cold, but if it gets around -20F, your battery is going to be tested. lovely batteries are generally fine to about 0, but some batteries do way better in super cold weather. It's worth the investment if you run into battery issues.
- If you have a home with any external water pipes, they probably need to be winterized or they'll freeze and explode. This applies mostly to trailer homes.
- Depending on how rural of an area you are moving to, how flat the terrain is, and what kind of vehicle you have, you may want to consider carrying a shovel in your vehicle. It's possible to get your car stuck 'high center' in a pile of snow and you'll have to dig it out. It sucks a lot less if you have a shovel. This isn't really a problem in an urban area.
- As far as clothes: Jeans are fine, but do get a bigass winter jacket with proper insulation.
