I will be driving with my family in November to Highlands, NC from NJ. I was told that the roads could be treacherous and snowy/icy. We live in a pretty snowy area that is hilly so we are used to driving in these conditions. Is it very snowing around Thanksgiving? How dangerous is it to drive through there during that time of year? My friend said driving without a 4X4 is not recommended. We will be driving our Honda Accord. Thanks.
