    What kinda snowfall does Newton receive? I'm sure it causes snow drifts. Are the roads passable?

    Well, it snows and it can snow a lot. Don't look at averages because most of the snowfall during the winter can come during a 1 or 2-week stretch. Main roads are passable, but make sure you have a snow blower too.
