Hi
We moved to the Milwaukee area last year from Kansas. They actually know how to clear roads here , unlike Kansas. We love it here. Where are you from in Kansas? Winter can be vastly different from east to west.

Kansas has next to zero in common with the most of the actual Midwest in terms of winter weather! I lived in the Madison and Sun Prairie areas for several years before moving elsewhere. I'm from the KC metro area and Johnson County. I left that area when I was younger, never cared for the culture there or large population size.

Start a list of the things you will likely need to buy. A good snow shovel. A seriously warm coat good for 0 degrees weather, a warm hat, insulated gloves, some kind of winter boots that go up to mid calf, some sand in your car trunk, jumper cables, probably snow tires, ice scraper for your car windows. I'm sure I left some stuff out, but others could think of some stuff too.

That looks to be on the outskirts of the Kansas City area.
We lived in that region for a while years ago. I remember the places in Johnson County Kansas doing a really good job removing whatever snow they had, at least back then they did. There was an ice storm once that was a doozy, but those didn't happen as frequently as I've seen them happen down south south at least while we were there in the KC area.
Johnson County used to be obsessive about 100% clearance of all streets and roads. Honestly, some places in Wisconsin aren't quite like that. Cul-de-sacs, dead-ends, etc. may or may not not get fully cleared of ice and snow. Nevertheless, it's still different. The attitude is different. It's not a life-crippling event, not a big deal. The vast majority of stuff is fully cleared after snow events and you can go about your life like normal. Occasionally, snow will fully melt away once or twice in the middle of winter, especially in that part of Wisconsin.

No problem, you'll find lots more to do in Wisconsin compared to Kansas in terms of interesting towns and scenic areas in a relatively short driving distance.

Very true there are outdoor activities available 12 months of the year. People in Wis tend to have lots of toys for outdoor activities. ATV's, boats, guns for hunting, snowmobiles,, fishing gear, skiing, you name it. And the best part is that the state is full of places to do all those things and more. Trails for bicycles, atvs, ski hills and a lot of state and county parks.
