Declaring a state of emergency allows the governor to institute certain regulations. One of the main ones being anti gouging laws. It prevents sellers of necessities from taking advantage of any fear buying that may occur.

Even if there was 8 inches of snow that fell doesn't mean you drove through, or as you said, over, 8 inches. Especially as you said, it was packed down, so maybe what, 3 inches of hard packed snow, maybe some slush? If you have decent all-seasons you'll be fine. Braking is where you have to worry. People slam on their brakes or just keep holding them where they're at once they lock instead of just a few quick pumps

On the other hand, I managed to "plow" a small street with about 6 inches worth of "unpacked" snow with my xi last week. I was comfortable doing 50 on the highway, only drove later at night without much traffic when it started snowing again. 95 was completely covered in snow, salt wasn't helping while it was coming down hard at midnight...at that point plows usually just wait until it's done snowing or the morning. Don't know if that's just the xi system doing its job but at the same time my friend was out in his 535 and didn't have any real issues either.

Done some small but very effective things. Replaced the thermostat, diagnosed some clunks I had, changed out the old worn out steering coupler, and did a full alignment on it. It's been a fun couple of days! The car has never driven this good before.

Yesterday was cooling system overhaul, tomorrow is VCG and VANOS seals. Looking forward to taking the valve cover off to see what condition it's in at 250,000km.
